Grange Wood, East Riding of Yorkshire - Nearly 6 ¼ acres, £59,000

Grange Wood

A good stone track leads through the larger Sutton Wood, to the ride-stop entrance of Grange Wood where a vehicle may be parked off the track, on a firm hard-standing. The hard-standing would be useful for stacking timber awaiting collection, seasoning prior to use as domestic fuel or for the siting of a woodland hut. This southern section of the wood is a wide belt of mature trees, mostly oak but with a few birch growing through too: the ground flora is low, a mix of grasses, ferns, honeysuckle, bramble and bracken. A cleared path leads off from the right hand side of the ride-stop and heads on through to an area where the dominant oak give way to large birch.

The next and largest section of the wood is comprised of young birch, cut around five or six years ago, which, along with a few evergreen rhododendron bushes, is quite dense in places and gives a great privacy screen as well as shelter for resident wildlife. The path forks just before entering this cover, part of a circular walk that accesses the rest of Grange Wood. Taking the right-hand route, the visitor shortly reaches a plank bridge with a handrail spanning a drainage ditch. This system of channels holds water, except at the driest of times, and is a draw for birds, mammals and invertebrates alike.

The path, twists and turns creating intrigue, until curving round to meet another small bridge at its most northerly point. A quiet bracken filled glade lies between this and the northern boundary of the wood (about 40 metres away) where an ancient hedgerow and ditch defines the edge of the wood from the fields of St Lois Farm beyond. All along this northern strip, there are again some very large trees including a number of characterful oaks as well as aspen, willow, rowan and hawthorn.

Continuing on the circular route, it heads south once again; the path arcing round and taking in a couple of pleasant glades, whereupon it crosses a third and final bridge and pops out in a larger light-filled clearing. Here a bench is situated to maximise the afternoon sunshine. This seems like an ideal location for a basecamp and, although by this point, the visitor may feel a long distance away from civilisation, it’s actually just a short walk from here, back to the fork in the path and ride-stop entrance.

Being a wood of varied ages, Grange Wood supports a large number of forest species. Birds are everywhere, you may be lucky enough to hear a tawny owl or buzzard call nearby amid the constant birdsong from blackbirds, robins, wrens, chaffinches, tits and the like. Signs of deer can be found, their tracks and scrapes are quite noticeable as well as a few nibbled plants along the routes.

The word ‘Grange’ traditionally means an isolated farm, with its farmhouse and nearby buildings, belonging to monks or nuns or to a feudal lord. A property called Grange Farm, after which the wood takes its name, is located on Newton Road opposite the main gated entrance.

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.
