Crendell Wood, Dorset - About 4 ¾ acres, £69,000

Crendell Wood

Crendell Wood sits deep within surrounding woodland; enveloped by nature and the sounds of the forest, the sense of peace here is almost tangible yet observe carefully and the whole wood is alive with activity.

There is little here to disturb the rhythm of nature. Abundant deer slots ( deer tracks ) mark the ground, squirrels forage in the undergrowth and numerous butterflies busy themselves in sunny clearings. This myriad of animal activity converges at the waters edge of a stream to form well worn trails near the banks where this life giving artery has cut into the soft earth as it passes through. The trickling of this woodland stream that passes through the woodland is one of the few sounds to greet the senses.

A series of delightful clearings flanked by giant oak trees punctuate the dense cover of hazel and birch. A series of old woodland trails can just about be made out amongst the thick summer growth. These routes into the cover of the wood probably date from a time when the woodland was an important source of material for the thriving local hurdle making industry. The wood is named after a nearby local centre of production that in turn gave its name to a particular style of the hurdle making craft. This industry played a crucial role in the development of the local agrarian economy for smallholders that grazed the areas of nearby chalky downland. These woodland rides will be a useful feature for providing access for future stewardship and enjoyment of the woods.

Beyond Crendell Wood this delightful area of countryside is a gateway to the New Forest and south coast where numerous local towns and villages await discovery.

These details were prepared by local manager Daniel Sharp.
