New interpretation board at Uley Bury
The reasons why Uley Bury, near Dursley (Gloucestershire, England) is such an important landmark have been set in stone. A new interpretation board explaining the history, archaeology, ecology and geology of the site has been unveiled. The bury stands at 650ft and is topped by an Iron Age hill fort.
Local councillor Janet Wood explained that several things had happened at the site over the last four years and an interpretation board had been put in place to add to the experience of visitors. "We have introduced grazing to Uley Bury to restore it to its former glory and this will hopefully encourage wild flowers to reseed and flourish," she said.
The interpretation board, set in stone from Farmington Quarry, has been funded by the Cotswold Conservation Board and Gloucestershire's archaeology service. It provides information on different aspects of Uley Bury, such as the famous ammonite fossils found there.
