Comment: Diverse area of chalk grassland with scattered scrub and some predominantly Yew woodland bordering the grassland. Very steep with the main access road to the visitor centre running through it and generally well used by visitors making it a difficult site to manage. Cattle grazing is carried out and rabbits are evident, scrub management and some cutting and raking of selected areas are all contributing to a valuable, varied and favourable unit. Tor grass and upright brome are scattered throughout but at acceptable levels (together about 20%) thatch and other negative indicators (ragwort 1%) are well below threshold levels or absent. Dominant indicator species (10 of 10) Birdsfoot trefoil, Salad burnett, also Rough hawkbit (9 of 10) Dwarf thistle (7 of 10) and Squinancywort (6 of 10). Gentians and Carline thistle both (4 of 10) Clustered bell flower, Ladies bedstraw, and Small scabious all (3 of 10) Also Kidney vetch and Common Rockrose (1 of 10) Other species include Eyebright, Orchid spp, Harebell, Burnett saxifrage and Yellow-wort.
