This site is mainly a conifer and beech plantation. There is a fringe along the northern edge of hazel coppice, a typical feature of long established and ancient woodland. This has a particularly good variety of woodland wildflowers including the uncommon yellow bird’s-nest orchid, broad-leaved helleborine, the green flowered orchid twayblade and sanicle. It forms a continuous block of woodland with the large species rich wood that lies to the west.
