Organisation Description

Worlebury Hillfort Group are working to restore the Iron Age hillfort in Weston Woods. This ancient monument has been designated ‘at risk’ by Historic England as it has been disappearing under brambles and heavy undergrowth. We need more volunteers to help cut back overgrowth from storage pits, defensive walls, and to restore sea views to both sides of the site for everyone’s enjoyment.
