Surveying in Weston Woods July 2009.

In 2009 we moved on to Worle Hill where there is an Iron Age Hillfort in Worlebury Woods. We researched the remains of Celtic field boundaries which are still visible in many places on Worle Hill. We did an earthwork survey on the banks to the east of the water tower in order to record them onto a plan and make a report. We then moved to the area by Worlebury Golf Course. We used some notes taken from the Reverend Skinner's journal. He visited Worle Hill and the hillfort several times between 1818 and 1835. In his journal he described the enclosures that he could see reaching all the way along the top of the hill. We walked the footpaths at the eastern end of the hill and located many of the banks and boundaries that Rev. Skinner had seen.
