Restoration of Iron Age hillfort planned
A restoration scheme will begin next week to protect the Iron Age hillfort of Kimsbury Camp, a scheduled ancient monument on Painswick Beacon, near Gloucester, south-west England.
The plans, which were discussed this week at a public meeting attended by the county council's archaeology service and the Painswick Beacon Conservation Group, include repairing the ramparts of the hillfort, scrub clearance, seed planting and the erection of information boards.
The county council's countryside adviser, Nick Russell, said: "We hope that by undertaking these works now, before the damage gets too bad, we will ensure visitors are able to enjoy the archaeology, ecology and views from this wonderful hillfort."
The work is scheduled to begin on 8 February and to be completed by the end of June.
