Rickstock Wood - SOLD, Shropshire - 9 acres, £75,000

Rickstock Wood - SOLD

At the start of the wood there is a large parking area and wooden gate. From the gate there is a path which leads through the woodland. It meanders through the wood until the path then reaches a clearing. The clearing is very flat and therefore very suitable for camping. It also has the potential for many other activities such as coppicing, firewood processing and green woodworking. The clearing is surrounded by rowan and silver birch trees with other species scattered around it. The clearing also contains a rustic and hand crafted bench which is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the view of the woodland.

Historically, Rickstock Wood has been quarried for sand/gravel. The remains of the quarry can still be seen in the shape of dips and mounds on the woodland floor. Nineteenth century Ordnance Survey maps show the shape of the quarry, which has been transferred onto our map below.

Within this woodland, there are many signs of wildlife. There are signs that fallow deer are present, and family groups can often be seen wandering through the wood, as well as sightings of pheasants and a tucked away badger sett. The wood is a haven for birds, and many different bird calls can be heard as you walk around the wood.

Oak, ash, sycamore, rowan, beech, hazel, holly and silver birch can be found throughout the woodland with a great deal of ease. Some of the plants and flowers seen here include wild raspberry, primrose, bluebells, cow parsley, wood sorrel and many varieties of ferns and bracken.

Towards the north western boundary there is a small area of wetland which could possibly have been a pond a long time ago. This wetland area is very beneficial to the woodland as it contributes to the diversity of wildlife visiting the wood. Some of the wildlife seen and heard here include, fallow deer, fox, rabbit, badger and pheasant. Different species of birds are also found in this wood, such as woodcock, buzzard, sparrow hawk, owl, woodpecker, jay and songbirds.

This woodland is a stone's throw from Newport and 13 miles from Telford. Nearby there is the Lilleshall Abbey ruins and the Aqualate Mere National Nature Reserve. Despite the name of the area, Puleston Common, this land is not registered as common land, and there are no public access rights.

The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
