Helping Hillforts & Earthwork Castles guide published

Hot off the press, this handy field guide will help you explore some of our local Iron Age and medieval heritage sites.  Field work and archaeological surveys were carried out through the Helping Hillforts & Earthwork Castles project.  This was one of the 15 heritage projects run by the Stiperstones & Corndon Landscape Partnership Scheme between April 2013 – March 2018.
