John Adams, the second president of the United States of American when visiting Fort Royal Park in 1786 was moved to say:
‘The people in the neighbourhood appeared so ignorant and careless at Worcester that I was provoked and asked ‘ And do Englishmen so soon forget the ground where liberty was fought for? Tell your neighbours and children that this is holy ground, much holier than that on which your churches stand. All England should come in pilgrimage to this hill, once a year’
Worcester City Council has shortlisted Plincke to prepare a conservation strategy for the restoration of the historically important site.
