Introduction

This project was a jointly funded purchase of Cleeve Wood, Goblin Combe, North Somerset, which contains a SSSI and a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Funding for the project came from English Heritage, English Nature and the countryside Agency Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund and the Heritage Lottery Fund. Currently the project is developing a management plan for the preservation and long term use of the woodlands cultural and environmental assets.

The 160 acres of Goblin Combe and Cleeve Wood in Somerset contain one of only a small number of unexcavated Iron Age hill forts, were purchased by North Somerset Council in November 2002 with grant assistance from the ALSF funds of English Heritage, the Countryside Agency, and English Nature. ALSF funding from English Heritage and the Countryside Agency is being used to encourage active local participation in the management of this former crushed rock quarry site. The Goblin Combe Environment Centre caters for a large number of North Somerset residents of all ages as well as many groups from outside the area: many of whom are from excluded social groups in areas of high deprivation. The project is developing sustainable life long learning and vocational training activities to improve the overall quality of life of the participants. The information gained from the project will be used to develop interpretative material which will have a long term use at the site, and to develop outreach and access strategies.
