Annex I habitats that are a primary reason for selection of this site

91J0 Taxus baccata woods of the British Isles  * Priority feature
Great Yews represents yew Taxus baccata woods in the south-west of the habitatís range. Although it is the smallest example of the habitat within the SAC series, it is important for the presence of about 300 old trees. It probably originated as yew wood following beech Fagus sylvatica or ash Fraxinus excelsior. It has some regeneration and so has the full structural and functional range expected of yew stands.
