PS: Razor wire is horrible - hope never to see it at an ancient monument.

Hardly ideal, but my point was that they could, if they absolutely *needed* to make sure people stopped climbing the hill, take that option.

Thats why I qualified it with what I really believe is going on. I think the current approach is merely a limiting exercise rather than an absolute rule.

I can't disagree with your last point - there does seem to be something of double standards going on. I've never climbed Silbury as an adult (ran up the lower slopes with my dog when I was about 12). Its got to be the same rule for everyone, including EH employees - except for scientific purposes and maintenance.
