Training for Volunteer English Heritage Monument Wardens

( Last Updated: 15-02-2013 )

 

An introductory training event for volunteers in November 2012 was led by the Blackdown Hills AONB Manager Linda Bennett, Charlotte Russell from English Heritage, Tim Gent  and Pru Manning  from Archaedia and Cressida Whitton from Devon County Council's Historic Environment Service.  It was attended by 26 people at Membury Village Hall.  The training consisted of a morning of presentations and discussions about the designated archaeological sites in the Blackdown Hills AONB and a look at the site information packs. This was followed by an afternoon site visit to Membury Hill fort and a discussion about how to record and photograph earthwork monuments.  Linda Bennett will be coordinating a campaign of site visits to record the condition of as many of the Scheduled Monuments in the Blackdown Hills AONB as possible and this work will be used to inform English Heritage's annual Heritage at Risk update and to target funding and conservation work in the area.

To volunteer .......anyone wishing to take part in this work should contact Linda Bennett, 01823 680681 Linda.bennett@devon.gov.uk.
