Staff member responsible for SSSI unit: Nicola Jameson
Unit ID: 1013504
Unit area: 1 hectares
Main habitat: Earth heritage
Condition:   Favourable
Latest assessment date: 09 August 2011
Condition assessment comment: Site is deemed to be in favourable condition. There is much loose material in the area of the lower exposures but the interest feature is adequately exposed. The ferral goats that were introduced in 2005 are keeping the levels of vegetation growth to an acceptable amount alongside the annual scrub management carried out by Gloucester City Council. Levels of vegetation are also not obstructing feature of interest in the upper exposures. Previous ramps put put in are now eroding. Periodic falls should uncover fresh exposures.
