Preserving the heathland 

Controlling the bracken on the Sugar Loaf is vital to help preserve the heathland, which is an important habitat for grouse and other ground nesting birds. This year sections of bracken found on the common will be crushed, reducing its energy so it doesn’t take over and smother the heather. All of this is done to ensure the Sugar Loaf remains a healthy landscape for all that call it home.
