Boseley Wood, Gloucestershire - About 2 ½ acres, £35,000

Boseley Wood
Boseley Wood
Gloucestershire

Located far from human disturbance, Boseley Wood is a great opportunity to become involved in small woodland ownership in this beautiful setting.

Boseley Wood takes its name from the Old English words, 'bosa' and 'leah,' meaning woodland clearing. The woodland consists mainly of fir trees from the second half of last century along with some fine mature oaks. These were a commercial crop but changes in forestry practices meant that they were never harvested and as such the woodland environment has remained undisturbed and the woodland ecosystem has developed intact in this most secluded and peaceful setting, sheltered by other established woodland.

The discontinuation of commercial forestry activity has lead to a recovery of the woodland grasses and fragile mosses that thrive in patches of marshy ground and in sunny clearings throughout Boseley Wood. Look out for the bronzy bun shaped cep mushroom that merges with the leaf litter; an elusive prize for the country kitchen.

Elsewhere naturally seeded hawthorn and hazel have established beneath the high canopy to create an atmospheric and enchanting environment in which to enjoy the natural world. There is plenty of scope here for further planting to restore a greater proportion of native broadleaf species for future generations and the diversification of wildlife.

Access to the wood is via a good woodland track that in turn leads to a quiet country lane in the attractive village of Blaisdon. This unspoilt area of the country has for centuries attracted visitors to enjoy the stunning natural landscape of the Wye valley and the forest of Dean. This once mainly forested landscape was an extensive royal hunting ground for generations and in modern times is rich in local history and mythology; where rural craft, folklore and legend combine in this unique rural enclave.

These particulars and plans were prepared by 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.
