Commoner's Rights

With the property comes the valuable fishing, shooting and grazing rights. These rights are known as 'Commoners Rights' which are attached to a limited number of period houses in Hungerford. The fishing rights include free fishing three days per week on the River Kennet, acknowledged as one of the finest trout streams in England. The rights also include grazing and shooting on the surrounding meadowland. The fishing is well stocked, strictly preserved and keepered. The grazing allows the owner of the property to keep two head of cattle. The 'Graziers' association supplies commoners who take up this ancient right with beef.
