Member of Wareham Court Leet that keeps an eye on the Town Walls,
and reports his findings back to the Court.
Wareham Walls are a Scheduled Ancient Monument (SAM) and is a protected
archaeological site of national importance.
They were originally built in Saxon times to defend the town from
Viking attacks. Wareham Walls surround the heart of the town on
three sides and date from the 9th century. The Walls (now grassy,
earth mounds) are managed to improve the local wildlife. For example,
the grass is cut at certain times of the year to allow plants to
flower, which benefits a variety of butterflies.
