Vegetation has been cleared from both flights of steps up to the viewpoint to make them safer.

Encroaching bramble, nettles and scrub are regularly cut back on each side of the steps through the summer, but once a year it is necessary to dig out grass, dandelions and other plants that have rooted in the stony surface and are threatening to hide the step risers, making it harder to walk up safely. The photos show before and after views.
