In the Clun area, the land rose from east to west from 600 to 1250 feet, and until the middle of the 16th century, this was one of the wildest and most desolate regions in England, for it was an area of conflict between the Welsh and the English.

The Clun Forest is a breed descending from one of the oldest breeds in England.
The Clun Forest can probably credit these breeds for its hardiness; its adaptability to survive on poor forage; and to prosper on good forage; the strong bond that can be seen between the ewes and their offspring; the drive to survive seen in lambs; and the milking capability of the ewes.
Clun Forest rams usually weigh from 175 to 225 pounds and the ewes are from 150 to 170 pounds.
