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

We have undertaken a number of projects, which you can explore
