The Marsh Archaeology Award is made to an individual or voluntary group, active in the United Kingdom, in order to recognise and promote high quality engagement with the stewardship of the archaeological heritage of the UK. A shortlist was drawn up by a selection panel consisting of the Council for British Archaeology's Director, the Director of Archaeology Scotland, and an appointed CBA trustee. Also shortlisted were Gloucester City's Clutch Clinic Community Group (highly commended) and the Dartmoor Cairn Survey and Repair Project, which was awarded the overall prize of £1000.
Members of the Worcestershire Young Archaeologists Club were invited to attend the CBA's Winter General Meeting to give a presentation on the project and to receive a commendation certificate, presented by the award's sponsor Brian Marsh OBE.

These include a fully digitised version of Doharty's Map of the Manor of Claines from 1751-3, fieldwork reports, oral history transcriptions and research on the area. Details of the heritage trail are also available, for anyone that would like to visit!
