Worlebury Camp Hillfort - Conservation Management Plan

Worlebury Camp is a large Iron Age hillfort located on a limestone promontory to the north of Weston-super-Mare. It is afforded the highest protection for a heritage asset in England, as a Scheduled Monument, and the land within which the hillfort sits is owned and managed by North Somerset Council. Worlebury Camp was placed on Historic England’s Heritage at Risk Register in 2016, categorised as vulnerable, with the principal threats being trees and vegetation. An archaeological condition survey of the hillfort was commissioned to identify the specific threats and risks to the monument, and to inform the management of the site. The aims within this management plan will ensure that this exemplary hillfort is uncovered, helping to reveal its secrets, lost for almost two hundred years under extensive tree and vegetation growth. We would like to receive your feedback on the management options we have identified.
