The breed takes its name from the old town of Clun and the surrounding forests. It is situated in the southwest corner of Shropshire and is bordered by Montgomeryshire and Radnorshire. At the beginning of the 19th century there were 12,000 acres of common land in this area. The greater part of this land rose to an altitude of 1500ft and has the remains of “pounds”, “druid circles” and “Offas Dyke”. At this time both the forest and common lands were inhabited by this breed of sheep hence the name.

Instructions: If you put cursor over a pin and click the breeders information will appear. On some of the breeders maps the pins are so close together on the zoomed out map that you can not see all the pins marking individual breeders. For those situations I recommend clicking on the blue words below the map to see a larger version that also shows the list of breeders in alphabetical order along the side.
