Argus Wood - SOLD, Somerset - Nearly 1 ½ acres, £25,000

Argus Wood - SOLD

The existing woodland tracks along the boundaries of Argus Wood make this a clearly defined and manageable self contained woodland on the gentle lower slopes of the Avon Valley near Bath.

This woodland has the variety and interest of many a larger wood. There is a mix of dense conifer, mature broadleaf and a sunny open clearing that makes a great base camp from which to be immersed in the woodland environment completely surrounded by other privately owned woodland. There are small areas of hazel that appear at some time in the past to have been coppiced and the dense cover is perfect for browsing deer that are frequently seen here.

Such is the importance of this natural environment that it carries special local authority designations aimed at ensuring its continued existence as an important place where rare species can thrive. The wood takes its name from the Brown Argus butterfly that is attracted to sheltered grassy woodland clearings such as that at Argus Wood.

From within Argus Wood it is hard to imagine that the historic city of Bath lies just a few miles to the west and is within an easy walk. The wider area has plenty here to offer the woodland owner, with nearby access to the Kennet and Avon Canal the stunning scenery of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Beauty and the splendour of Georgian Bath.

Particulars and plans were prepared by our local manager, Daniel Sharp

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.

Exit junction 18 of the M4 and follow signs to Bath on the A46. After a few miles the road becomes a dual carriageway. Continue past the exit to Bath city centre and after a further mile or so there is a roundabout signposted right to Bradford On Avon on the A363. Follow this road as it climbs up the hill for about half a mile until a small turning on the right to Warleigh. Continue along Warleigh Lane for a couple of miles as it climbs up hill through woods and at the end of a lane forms a T-junction. Turn right and after about 50 metres there is then a track on your right that leads through a section of woodland to the entrance to the wood.

This gate is kept locked (the new owner will be given a key for vehicular access) but you can continue on foot along the track for a couple of hundred metres until you reach a fork in the track by an old shipping container. Keep to the far left track as it bends sharply round and continue for a further 300 metres down the valley side until you meet the intersection with another track at which point turn right and continue for a further 200 metres until the sign and pink markings for Argus Wood on your right.

Sat Nav / GPS note: The post code BA15 2JE is for the point shown on the location map by the red dot on plan 2.
