I agree with almost all of that, but I'm not sure about the "charging for access" bit - Maiden Castle, for example, is free to visit and is in EH care.

Completely agree about the loss of the wider landscape integrity of the site though.

I would have thought it was rather expensive to control a paid car park anyway. But the Guinevere bit intrigued me, notice Rhiannon has put something up about it... Story has it Guinevere was born here.

"Old Oswestry Hill Fort, known as Caer Ogyrfan after King Arthur’s father in law, is said to be the birthplace of Queen Ganhumara, or Guinevere. It is also believed to have been the site for the final battle of the Powys king Cynddylan, the last descendant of King Arthur to rule in Shropshire."
