Staff member responsible for SSSI unit: Nicola Jameson
Unit ID: 1013443
Unit area: 0 hectares
Main habitat: Earth heritage
Condition:   Unfavourable declining
Latest assessment date: 14 March 2014
Reason for adverse condition: Inappropriate scrub control
Condition assessment comment: No management of the site is apparent since at least the previous assessment visit in 2009. The vegetation cover from that time, both trees and shrubs, remains with increasing damage to the interest features. There would not appear to be any management plan for this site and no agreement with the landowner (Gloucestershire County Council) for its maintenance. GCC contacted by e-mail with brief assessement and recommendation for dialogue with Nicky Jameson (RO) about need for management with possible site visit to include Dave Evans NE national specialist.
