MOLA was awarded the contract to prepare the Queenborough Lines Conservation Management Plan at Tender.

The Conservation Management Plan was prepared to support a bid for a Heritage Lottery Fund bid, as well as being a management tool for the Borough Council. We organised a successful public consultation event for the Conservation Management Plan, attended by all local stakeholders.

Queenborough Lines is an 1860s defensive feature, built as fears of invasion from Europe intensified. It consists of a c. 3km-long linear earth rampart and water-filled ditches, and two brick-built magazines for storing gunpowder. The site is considered  to be nationally important for its archaeology and history and also regionally important for wildlife.

Our work included identifying the significance of individual features, identifying and prioritising repairs, informing on-going management and shaping audience development proposals.
