Discovering Black Down

is a three year project (2013-2016) funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project will raise awareness of the wildlife and archaeological value of the Black Down and Burrington Commons through activities, events and training.

In recent years erosion and damage to specific features and the site in general has occurred through a combination of recreational use, sensitive site conditions and weather.
The legacy of Discovering Black Down will be to ensure local community and user group volunteers continue to play an active role in the care and conservation of this area’s heritage.

The project now has a web site Discovering Black Down where you will find more information.
