Clean-up ready to storm fort
ABOUT 30 volunteers are ready to clear thick scrub from the Iron Age fort and Roman burial on Leckhampton Hill.
The massive project to clear 250 to 300 metres of ramparts on both sides starts on Tuesday.
There is also a small section around the hill fort with mature hawthorn and blackthorn that needs to be taken down.
Wayne Sedgwick, senior community ranger for Cheltenham Borough Council, said the scrub growth had obscured the fort.

He said: "The fort and burial site are historic monuments and an important part of Leckhampton Hill and it's so important to preserve them.
"Due care will be taken not to disturb the ramparts whilst clearing the area."
