Comment: Despite evidence of significant historical damage the fossil ridge topography is still evident, at least in parts, and good quality shingle vegetation is present. Fossil ridge topography is evident in the southern part of the unit and in places in the northern part. The vast majority of the shingle is now undisturbed aside from around the major structures and showing signs of vegetation recolonisation. There is no evidence of recent loss of extent of the vegetated shingle feature. The vegetation shows the desired transitions from bare shingle through the dry vegetation associated with the stable ridges to that associated with the lower lying depressions and lagoons to the east. The characteristic plant seakale is locally frequent amongst the vegetation towards the southern end of the unit. The ridge vegetation in this part includes the typical range of plants such as wood sage, sea campion and bryophyte/lichen mats. There is no evidence of significant threat posed by non-native or undesirable plants.
