Built Conservation

World War 2 Pill Box Restoration

Pill boxes created as part of the World War 2 ‘Stop Line’ are not subject to any existing preservation mechanisms but are an important part of the built heritage of the South West. With minor adaptations, these structures make perfect bat or little owl roosts, therefore both providing new roosting sites for Red Data Book species and conserving important features of the historic landscape.

Conservation of Waterlogged Archaeological Sites

The Avalon Marshes is famous as being home to a number of prehistoric trackways and lake villages, preserved through being buried in the peat. These all feature on the English Heritage ‘Heritage at Risk Register 2011’ and positive action for conservation is essential. The project will be divided into three different elements. These are monument assessment and monitoring, development of site management strategies and implementation of the strategies on the prioritised sites.
