Clearing a Site of Special Scientific Interest

Hembury Fort, Devon | Nov 2016 – to date

This winter we will carry out a programme of work at Hembury Hill Fort as part of our efforts to:

  • protect the ancient features
  • enhance habitats for wildlife
  • tree surgery to some beech tree for safety
  • bank building
  • tree clearing work at East gate
  • veiw hole cutting to reveal the view all the way to Dartmoor and further, and to uncover the fort rampart defences

The plan for the Hembury Management Team is to preserve the site with great sensitivity to the sites archaeology, biodiversity, trees and scrubland. The site has been entered into a Natural England Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) funded scheme, which provides funding over a 10year period (Agreement AG00630132), until completion.

The current team comprises of and not exclusively of; Ecologic, Blackdown Hills AONB, Historic England (previously English Heritage) and English Nature (previously Natural England). Together this team can work towards completing the HLS scheme and preserve the site for the future.
