Most of Cadbury Hill is owned by North Somerset Council but the hill fort at the top, the southern slopes and some of the woodland is owned jointly by Yatton and Congresbury Parish Councils.
It is a nationally important site for archaeology (the hill fort is a Scheduled Ancient Monument). Yatton Congresbury Claverham and Cleeve Archaeological Trust (YCCCART) is a local group of amateur archaeologists working under the guidance of North Somerset archaeologist Vince Russett. They have been carrying out surveys on the hill for several years. For more information about the group’s work click here to go to the YCCCART website.
It is also a Local Nature Reserve and contains the only natural woodland in the parish of Yatton.
