Condition assessment comment: Recovery of this unit continues with the south facing ramparts becoming more open following scrub clearance and cattle grazing under HLS. Further scrub clearance would be beneficial to prevent encroachment into the heathier areas and to open up the grassland further. North and west facing ramparts have larger blocks of heathland with only scattered scrub. The sward is a little longer than desirable but this may be due to the wet spring/summer we have experienced this year. Heath Bedstraw, Mouse-ear Hawkweed, Tormentil, Sheeps Sorrel and Wood Sage are frequent with Erica spp occasional. All other indicators are passed.
Number of adverse condition reasons: 0
