Staff member responsible for SSSI unit: Nicola Jameson
 
Unit ID: 1013510
 
Unit area: 0 hectares
 
Main habitat: Earth heritage
 
Condition:   Favourable
 
Latest assessment date: 12 October 2011
 
Condition assessment comment: Not practical to maintain an exposed section which is clear of debris because the rock type would degrade too rapidly. Would be easy to remove leaf litter if necessary - site is in favourable condition. The leaf litter covering the exposure affords good protection for the soft rock geology. Surrounding woodland shades the site suppressing ground cover and over time the canopy cover has reduced the bramble cover.
