Lawson Wood - SOLD, Gloucestershire - About 3 ½ acres, £49,000

Lawson Wood - SOLD
Lawson Wood - SOLD
Gloucestershire

A peaceful forest environment of predominantly towering conifer and interesting ground flora with an old logging track providing excellent access into the centre of the wood.

The coniferous forest environment has much to offer both in terms of provision of important wildlife habitat and its undoubted natural beauty.

Lawson Wood is located amongst other areas of privately owned mixed woodland and forms part of a diverse range of woodland habitat where mammals, insects and birds are well supported by this variety. There are attractive open clearings, a small section of hazel coppice and also parts where dense thicket of bramble, fern and shrub provide daytime cover for deer, wild boar and the wily fox. These creatures of the night lie undisturbed until the light fades and they can take their place in the food chain once darkness descends.

In the woodland tree tops the Lawson Cypress is also vital for nesting birds, providing dense, early spring cover whilst other tree species are still in bud. The examples of these trees in Lawson Wood have reached particularly impressive proportions in full maturity.

The Lawson Cypress after which this wood is named plays its part in this mixed habitat. These trees, originally from west coast USA were introduced into this country around the middle of the nineteenth century to populate the country estates of the wealthy. It is not just their ornamental value that made them remarkable but the light, durable timber is much prized for use in instrument making.

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 but within easy reach of the transport infrastructure and facilities of Gloucester some ten miles distant.

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.
