Abstract

The South Downs in southern England have been farmed for 5000 years : the initial loess cover is now a thin, stony remnant as a result of erosion. Flood damage to property has been a regular event since the conversion of this area to winter cereals in the 1970s. Soil conservation measures have been negligible. In the longer term, increasing stoniness of soils, the economic incentives for arable farming in marginal areas, and the success of legal proceedings relating to flood damage, will determine the future of erosion on the South Downs
