Condition assessment comment:

As noted against individual features this unit is considered to be the grass component but is so poorly mapped all features are present. Previous favourable verdict appears unduly optimistic. Measures taken long-term to address the lack of regeneration within the wood and wood pasture components are now adversely affecting the grassland. Attempts are currently underway to allow some cattle grazing on the grass area under HLS. Limestone pavement feature mostly OK although there are issues with deer browsing, these animals may be also the main issue re woodland regeneration.

Number of adverse condition reasons: 0
