Comment:

The unit has continued to be unmanaged since the last assessments in 2012 and 2006. The adverse reasons and management needed to correct these remain the same. Overall the unit condition continues to decline with further reduction in the extent of Dry Heath and Wet Heath. The site is in very poor condition with regard to suitable habitat for reptiles.
Tree clearance, gorse and scrub management, bracken control measures and management of people pressures are required to restore the heathland interest to favourable condition.

Number of adverse condition reasons: 4
