Woodhouse

The centre of the hillfort is managed as a transitional birch woodland undergoing gradual succession to lowland acid oak woodland.  The area around the fort is a mosaic of grazed heath with woodland. Large areas are dominated by a bracken or rhododendron under-storey and the remnants of heathland flora are being shaded out.

The main aim of future management is to restore the heathland through the removal of bracken and rhododendron, the thinning out of young trees and encouraging the expansion of the remaining lowland heath.
