The gypsum thing is abit of a myth





Definetely   add as   as much  manure  woodchip or any organic matter such as leaf mold or grass mowings  as possible

Usually a lack of regular grazing causes the grass to, for lack of a better word become very lazy.


Flail it off, then get grazing with sheep.

The grass will then send down roots into the clay searching for nutrients and moisture and it turns the clay slowly into loamy soil.
