Hampstead Heath. London

I'm just trying to figure out what sort of heath it is. It's managed and has spots of gorse and heather.It also has lots of trees other than Birch and Alder. It has oak,walnut,Apple,Hazel,Chestnut and a large woodland area.
I'm not sure if it would be considered grass heath and if it has a stable climax community or a plagioclimax community.There are also parts that can get very boggy and mossy.With high parts and low parts and Ponds. The more I think about the variety of trees, plants, insects etc the more confused I feel.
