Staff member responsible for SSSI unit: Julie Russ
Unit ID: 1005029
Unit area: 1 hectares
Main habitat: Earth heritage
Condition:   Unfavourable no change
Latest assessment date: 27 October 2010
Reason for adverse condition: Other - specify in comments
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.
