I would though correct the impression that this is only a wet weather problem. Those monitoring the site several times a week have been recording the wear since 2008, the wear takes place throughout and is just worse in wet or warm weather, not least because more feet are attracted to climb when it isn't raining thus etching the archaeology away when it is dry.



I strongly agree, and here's proof, a picture taken in September 2010. http://heritageaction.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/silbury2g.jpg


I'll pop down with Chief next week and get those darn sheep off the hill. They cause more problem in my field then ever I do walking over it when its soft.
