Transhumance (noun): The practice of moving livestock on a seasonal basis.
The young, unmarried women are made to leave their homes and community to tend the livestock on the summer pastures of Bodmin Moor, camping in the shadow of stone circles.
Creating footsteps where others will follow....
Each summer a group of young people gather to work, travel and share life together. Always on the road, The Shearing Gang, brings together a disparate group, some brought up on the land, others escaping the city. Their journey takes them to Bodmin Moor, passing close to a mystical site, Hurlers’ Stones, in search of a better life.
