People are being urged to get their hands dirty and volunteer to preserve Worlebury Hillfort.

The Worlebury Hillfort Group has been working hard over the past two years clearing vegetation from the site, allowing new areas of the hillfort to be opened up.

The team has decided to embark on a new project to dismantle the large cairn and playforts which have been illegally constructed out of the hillfort’s materials.

As the group prepares to take on the huge project, it is searching for people to join them to help to maintain the Iron Age monument.

Cllr Peter Bryant said: “We are looking for more willing volunteers to help undertake some of this work.

“This is an opportunity to become involved with an exciting project, right in the historical heart of Weston.”

To volunteer, contact the council’s archaeologist Cat Lodge on dm.archaeology@n-somerset.gov.uk or call 01934 888811.
