What is the challenge?

Farmsteads are very much part of the English landscape and this is particularly true in Worcestershire. Indeed, a project undertaken in 2010 to map the historic farms in the county showed that 81% of them still retained some part or all of their historic buildings. However, there are enormous pressures on farming and historic farm buildings are being lost. In many cases, they no longer meet the needs of modern agriculture and they are expensive to maintain. The result is that many are being converted to other sustainable uses or are simply falling down.

The Project is supported by the British Agricultural History Society
