The Holincote Estate in the Exmoor National Park, Somerset is owned by the National Trust and covers more than 12000 acres of farmland, woodland and moorland. Since 2009 it has been part of Multi-Objective Flood Management Demonstration Schemes, funded by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, to examine how changes in the management of river catchment areas can influence the incidence and severity of flooding in the area.
