Sledmere House in East Yorkshire

The Estate

Environmental Policy

The overall policy is to manage the Estate on a sound, yet sensitive commercial basis to support its running costs and to fund ongoing Estate improvements. The family sees this as being conservation in the widest sense – as part of the National Heritage, of archaeology, of wildlife and of a community.

Environmental stewardship is at the heart of the wider management of the Estate and includes schemes for regeneration of hedgerows and field margins to encourage flora and fauna, birds and other wildlife.
