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.
