Note:

When undertaking an appropriate assessment of impacts at a site, all features of European importance (both primary and non-primary) need to be considered.

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

91A0 Old sessile oak woods with Ilex and Blechnum in the British Isles
The woodland lies on steep boulder-strewn slopes, with the old sessile oak wood element tending to be more on the upper slopes, with ash Fraxinus excelsior and alder Alnus glutinosa lower down. The ground flora under the oak–birch areas is variable, ranging from acidic bilberry Vaccinium myrtillus-dominated areas to bluebell Hyacinthoides non-scripta on the deeper soils. The bryophyte communities are best-developed on the rocks and damp cliff faces; Atlantic species occur, although not as abundantly as in the Borrowdale valley farther west. The woods occur in association with wet and dry heath and juniper Juniperus communis communities.
