Comment: Grassland adjacent to woodland with areas of scattered scrub and a boundary of trees against the road. Site is only grazed by rabbits and the local wildlife trust have been very active in keeping scrub down to acceptable levels by hand, grazing is planned. Salad Burnett dominant (10 of 10) Thyme abundant (8 of 10) Squinancywort, Dwarf thistle and common rockrose frequent (6 of 10). Birds foot trefoil and Mouse-ear Hawkweed occasional (4 of 10) Cowslip, Rough Hawkbit and Small scabious rare (2 of 10) Also present on the site are a variety of Orchid species and Twayblades, Autumn Gentian, Carline thistle and Burnett saxifrage. Regenerating scrub is present throughout the grassland areas with Torgrass in 3 small patches, but grazing, when introduced, is expected to get this under control.
