Brickworks Wood, Hampshire - Over 4 acres, £59,000

Brickworks Wood
Brickworks Wood
Hampshire

Sunlight from adjacent open fields illuminates the inviting clearings and carpet of golden leaves along the banks of a gushing stream as it passes through this most attractive of woodlands.

Brickworks Wood is set amongst the rural landscape of the Hampshire countryside. The area has a proud aristocratic heritage from when the woodland and grounds originally formed part of the extensive estate of Tylney Hall, the country seat of the Tylney family. The original seventeenth century manor was demolished by its owner and later replaced by the existing late nineteenth century manor that presides over the surrounding landscape from an elevated position overlooking Street End Copse of which Brickworks Wood is a part. This serves as a thought provoking reminder of the long and enduring history of the woodland here and how best to conserve it.

Once within the wood the ground is predominantly well drained and firm underfoot. Level ground makes for easy access throughout. Minimal human intervention in recent years has lead to a delightfully natural feel where wildlife can feel at home. There are a number of clearings where towering mature oak and beech have sheltered the understory beneath their capacious canopy and a series of woodland streams run along the boundary and through Brickworks Wood.

A large attractive lake borders the south western edge of the woodland. This lake is also available for private ownership and its proximity to the boundary of Brickworks Wood is a tremendous draw for wildlife of all types. From the rich insect life that thrives on the wetland fringes to the migratory game birds that seek respite here on the long journey north /south. In particular there are regular sighting of the now elusive woodcock and teal.

The wood takes its name from the remains of the nearby nineteenth century brick works that were a feature of the local area due to its underlying clay subsoil. The pits from which the clay was excavated are still clearly visible today.

The nearby village of Rotherwick offers a friendly welcome at the village pubs if staying overnight to complete a woodland project. Hook is only a couple of minutes drive and for more specialist woodland tools and supplies Basingstoke is within easy reach in this most accessible yet peaceful woodland location.

These details 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.

Directions

From junction 5 of the M3 follow signs for Hook on the B3349 which skirts around the town for a couple of miles over three roundabouts until a sharp right hand bend, where on this corner a minor road to Rotherwick continues straight ahead for a mile to the village crossroads where there is a right turn along Cowfold Lane. After approx 500 metres there is a gateway into the woods and a Woodlands.co.uk 'For Sale' board. You can park in this entrance taking care not to obstruct the access. You will need to climb the gate and continue on foot into the woods.

From the gateway proceed straight ahead along the woodland track for 200 metres ignoring a turning on the left. After a further 200 metres you will notice the orange markings and the track then comes to an end where the entrance to Brickworks Wood is immediately on your left.
