City of London commissioned Place Services to research and prepare a Conservation Management Plan to inform the future management and development of Ambresbury Banks, a scheduled Iron Age Hill Fort located in Epping Forest. Working alongside the client team, we undertook vegetation and earthwork condition surveys of the scheduled monument, and completed assessments of access and interpretation at the site.

A statement of significance was prepared, managment issues were identifed and conservation polices drawn up to ensure the significance of the monument, including its important wood pasture habitat, is retained. A series of recommendations were also made for enhancements to the interpretation and access on the monument, including provision for disabled parking.
