Are you interested in protecting the historic environment on your farm?

Published on

ADAS are working with Natural England to better understand why some heritage options are not taken up even where they are applicable to the farm. We have a particular interest in the options  HS3, HS4 and HS9 within Countryside Stewardship.

Are you interested in protecting the historic environment on your farm?

The Countryside Stewardship options available for heritage include:

  • HS3: Reduced-depth, non-inversion cultivation on historic and archaeological features;
  • HS4: Scrub control on historic and archaeological features; and
  • HS9: Restricted depth crop establishment to protect archaeology under an arable rotation.

We would like to hear from farmers who could have taken up these options, but decided not to. This will help us understand any barriers and provide recommendations to Natural England on how they could improve the options going forward into the future Environmental Land Management Scheme. 

If you would like to provide your views please follow this link:

The survey will take no more than ten minutes and your participation is voluntary, you are free to withdraw at any time during or after the interview. The survey is conducted in line with the Market Research Society Code of Conduct and all answers you provide will be treated in the strictest confidence and any views will remain anonymous.
