The Hill Radnor is a native hill breed from the Welsh and English border shires of Radnor, Hereford, Monmouth and Brecon - now classed as rare with less than 900 breeding ewes remaining in the UK.

With its light grey-brown to brown head and legs, strong body and full, cream-coloured fleece, the Hill Radnor stands out amongst hill sheep. Thrifty to keep and docile by nature, the breed is as at home on the large farm as it is on the smallholding.

The Sheep


The Hill Radnor Flock Book Society has been working to promote and support the Hill Radnor sheep since 1949. Like many native breeds, it has suffered a decline in number in recent decades and was particularly affected by the Foot and Mouth cull of 2001 in its traditional home counties.

There are, however, very many reasons for its continued popularity. With flocks dotted around the British Isles, an annual calendar of events and a dedicated society to support newcomers, the HRFBS website is packed with information on the breed - and reasons to get involved!
