Both the Willsworthy Ranges and Standon Hill areas have been looked at. Key reportable features are Blanket mire, wet heath, dry heath and acid grassland. It is the dry heath areas around Hare Tor and Ger Tor that are of most concern with chronic high grazing pressure noted. For Standon Hill it is the condition of the Blanket mire that is of most concern with large areas on the plateau area that look in poor condition (hydrological (too dry) and livestock grazing pressure). This site check raises the question of whether the current condition class of Unfavourable Recovering can be justified and discussions are now in place with relevant owner/occupiers to rectify this.
