The Rural Historic Environment

The Historic Environment Countryside Section of the Archaeology Service provides advice on the management and conservation of the rural historic environment. On a daily basis this includes advice for landowners and farmers on Environmental Stewardship applications, English Woodland Grant Schemes, orchard plantations and hedgerow removals.

Consultation with the Historic Environment and Archaeology Service is a mandatory requirement of an Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) application and Energy Crop Scheme application. However, if you are considering Entry Level Stewardship  (ELS) or an English Woodland Grant Scheme (EWGS) there is no specific requirement to consult with us. Nonetheless we would welcome your enquiry and offer a comprehensive advisory service to assist with historic environment conservation.

For further information about Environmental Stewardship and other grant schemes available to farmers and landowners, download our Farming and Archaeology leaflet (PDF 704 KB) or visit Link to external website Natural England's website.

We have undertaken a number of projects, which you can explore further by visiting our Projects page.

For further information please contact the Historic Environment Countryside Advisor.
