Fresh information about the history of a North Devon Iron Age hill fort is due to be unveiled at a family open day this Sunday. People are being invited to look round the ancient site in Huntshaw Wood, between Torrington and Weare Giffard, ahead of work by archaeologists to uncover the secrets of Berry Castle, a scheduled monument thought to date back 2,600 years. The free open day, which runs from 11am to 4pm, is being held as part of the Festival of Archaeology, coordinated by the Council for British Archaeology. Attractions will include an Iron Age re-enactment, cream teas, childrens dressing up, face-painting, badge-making, storytelling, guided walks, as well as a chance to try dowsing and Iron Age potage. Audrey Alimo, chairman of the Friends of Berry Castle, said: Until recently most locals had never heard of Berry Castle and so very few ever visited it. It has never been studied so virtually nothing is known about it. The friends group have been going for just over a year now and working with the landowners, Devon Clinton Estates, and Historic England, have successfully raised its profile. We have been successful in securing a significant grant from the Coastal Recycling Community Fund as well as grants from Alverdiscott and Huntshaw Parish Council, Weare Giffard Parish Council and the Torrington Cavaliers. The grants are funding research in Berry Castle and a geophysical survey was completed earlier this month. The results will be released on the open day.
