The Moors on Swinton Estate are designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, Special Area of Conservation and Special Protection Area, and conservation measures are in place to protect them. The Estate is also signed up to The Environmental Stewardship Scheme which safeguards wildlife habitat through adjusted livestock management. This modifies feeding and stocking rates as well as fertiliser input and weed control.
A programme of moorland drainage grip blocking has also been undertaken with the help of funding from Natural England. This has improved and slowed the run off of water from upland areas to help reduce upland erosion and downstream flash flooding.
Many farms are benefiting from Environmental Stewardship where it forms an essential part of the financial input needed to make upland farms viable.
Following the statement from the Government, Swinton Park Hotel, Swinton Country Club & Spa, all restaurants, Swinton Cottages and Swinton Bivouac are fully closed until 30th April 2020.
