In November 2022 Langholm finally secured the purchase of 10,000 acres of Langholm Moor from The Duke of Buccleuch. This is now enabling the Community to set up The Tarras Valley Nature Reserve (TVNR). We already have 5 full time employees working to set up the TVNR and have created a Tree Nursery with 32,000 young trees in it for planting on the Reserve in the future. It also includes a working Hill Farm with over 1000 Sheep and 40 Hectares of Mature Conifers and these are due to be felled in 2023 as many were blown over by Storm Arwen. There will also be new way-marked Walks set up in the Nature Reserve and some of the 9 properties secured will become holiday rentals in 2023.
