Comment: Areas of short species-rich grassland are present on the south-facing slope, especially the eastern grazing unit at Lawford Sheard Gate. CG4 grassland contains frequent Cirsium acaule, Lotus corniculatus, Sanguisorba minor and Carex flacca, with occasional Galium verum and Hippocrepis comosa, and rare Helianthemum nummularium. Cover of gorse exceeds 5%, mostly at the top of the slope. The fields at the foot of the slope are tall, species-poor CG4c with very little diversity, and were improved in the past. Neutral grassland occurs as a mosaic of MG5 and MG6 with scattered patches of Brachypodium pinnatum. Lathyrus pratensis, Silaum silaus, Centaurea nigra and Oenanthe pimpinelloides are occasional. Bracken has invaded some areas of the more species-rich grassland south and west of Rook Grove. Ragwort is frequent throughout. There are several small flushes, with frequent Mentha aquatica, Lotus pedunculatus, Filipendula ulmaria, Lychnis flos-cuculi and Galium uliginosum. The largest to the east of Rook Grove is generally in good condition.
