Condition assessment comment:

Previous Favourable assessment appears unduly optimistic. The true feature condition (bar grassland) have not significantly changed since 2009- i.e. in reality woodland and pavement should have been flagged unfav. The wood and limestone pavement features remain struggling over browsing and bark stripping issues presumably mostly due to deer plus limited age structure of trees. The grassland is presently struggling on sward height, probable loss of smaller indicators and localised scrubbing up by birch. HLS is currently trying to address the last issues through introduction of cattle.

Number of adverse condition reasons: 0
