From its inception over 30 years ago Agri-Environment Scheme policy has consistently recognised the importance of protecting and managing the historic environment, including traditional farm buildings (TFBs), to secure a range of public goods for society. Although difficult to incorporate into modern farming systems, many TFBs are still used and retain a function. They are a fundamental and ubiquitous feature of the countryside and help to define its landscape character and historic interest. TFBs are also important places for wildlife and provide a significant contribution to a sense of place for rural communities and visitors alike. As part of the transition to the Environmental Land Management (ELM) schemes an assessment of the effectiveness and cultural value of the TFB maintenance options is required to identify issues which need to be addressed during the remainder of existing agreements, identify areas of success and inform best practice for the development of ELM schemes and establish baseline data for further monitoring.
