Main habitat: Earth heritage
 
Condition:   Unfavourable no change

Condition assessment comment: Due to lack of management the site is in unfavourable condition. The edges of the pit are overgrown with some roots penetrating the exposures. Those exposures which were most easily accessible previously are still the best areas for the site. Once the lease is signed next summer then a management agreement will be agreed for the site.
