Silbury Hill

English Heritage are to carry out excavations at Silbury Hill to find the 'invert level' of the Atkinson tunnel, beginning October 9 and talong about a week. The main work, decided following Skanska's seismological survey, will be carried out in 2007, see www.english-heritage.org.uk/server/show/ConWebDoc.5390. For general information on Silbury Hill see www.english-heritage.org.uk/server/show/ConWebDoc.4011

The photograph below was taken on May 17, 2004, when I was interviewed on the successful application to the Inspector against the designation of Silbury Hill as 'Open Access' under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. As the nominal owner of Silbury Hill, I was the only person who could lodge the appeal, though it was effectively supported by EH.
