Trespassers damage Silsbury Hill

Trespassers have caused “spectacular” damage to Silsbury Hill, a human-made mound which dates back to 2,400 B.C.

Mr Leary said access to the mound had been prohibited for a number of decades and people should not be attempting to climb it.

“They are going up and it is very wet and they are eroding the side of the hill,” he added.
