The management consists of working to retain the open grassy areas and to try and expand them. In the winter months groups of volunteers from the British Trust of Conservation Volunteers (BTCV) are booked to carry out this work together with the weekly visits of the volunteer warden. This is done to enhance the biodiversity of this site. Surveys of some of the taxa are being undertaken; mainly butterflies and moths, mammals, ground beetles and fungi. We would welcome any help in any of these activities. .
