More information:

The field layer of these habitats is dominated by blaeberry and purple moor grass. Where the soil is deeper the field layer is again rich in herbs such as wood-sorrel, yellow pimpernel, primrose, common dog-violet, wood anemone and bluebell. Wild angelica, marsh hawks-beard and meadowsweet are present in wetter situations and in small areas of base-rich soils sweet woodruff is present below ash and hazel. Hypnoid mosses including Hylocomium splendens, Thuidium tamariscinum and Rhytidiadelphus loreus grow abundantly. The native woodland relics support rich assemblages of oceanic lichens and bryophytes along with ferns such as the hay scented buckler fern and the filmy fern.
