On the 24th Day of June 1980 at Chester The Commons Commissioners granted to Audlem Parish, Nantwich and Crewe Borough Councils the area of Common Land known as Blackwater Moss now renamed The Longhill Moss.

The acreage of 8.179 acres which consisted of 4.2 acres of grassland. The remaining area was moss, gorse, hillocks and flooded woodland.

Audlem Parish Council were tasked to rent the grassland to provide an income which was to be held in a ring fenced account for the purpose of maintenance of this Common Land. In return The Commons Commissioners granted to the residents of the village of Audlem the right to walk the boundaries of the grassland every year between the 26th to the 30th of December.

Should any residents wish to walk the bounds a location map and information sheet are available at Williams Newsagents.
