Pannage Wood - SOLD, Hampshire - Over 5 ¾ acres, £69,000

Pannage Wood - SOLD

The secrets of the mature beech wood are many and varied. At first sight, a place of obvious natural beauty, where woodland mammals can thrive and the peace and quiet is a tonic for the visitor. Looking beyond this initial appeal, every plant and animal has its own secret history.

Native truffle fungi grow in beech woods. These fungi are ectomycorrhizal, which means they help the host tree obtain nutrients in exchange for some of the sugar the tree produces through photosynthesis. Elsewhere new life springs from decay as the sulphur tuft fungus clings to decomposing stumps. (photos below)

In Celtic mythology, Fagus was the God of beech trees. It was thought to have medicinal properties – beech leaves were used to relieve swellings, and boiling the leaves could make a poultice. Forked beech twigs are also traditionally used for divining.

Beech timber is used for a variety of purposes, including fuel, furniture, cooking utensils, tool handles and sports equipment. The wood burns well and was traditionally used to smoke herring. The edible nuts, or masts, were once used to feed pigs, and in France they are still sometimes roasted and used as a coffee substitute. The name of the wood continues this connection with the pig as pannage was the ancient right granted by the landowner to graze pigs in the woodland.

Wildlife abounds, larger mammals include fallow, roe and muntjac deer which can often be seen grazing in the early morning or at dusk. Whilst the tree canopy is host to a huge variety of birdlife. An early visit will be rewarding with a chorus of birdsong.

An ancient byway runs outside the southern boundary and forms a useful secondary access.

Nearby the pretty towns and villages of west Hampshire provide a plentiful supply of hostelries and woodland supplies. Andover in particular has a wide range of facilities having grown from a small seventeenth century wool and silk town to a large regional centre today.

From the A303 leave at the Andover exit signed for the A343 and head north to Hurstbourne Tarrant and Newbury. A mile or so after passing through the village of Enham Alamein there is a turning on your right to Little London. If you are approaching from the north along the A343 then this turning is on your left about a mile or so after passing through the village of Hurstbourne Tarrant.

Continue down this country lane for about a mile until you reach Little London and then turn left into the village on a right hand bend. The road will then lead you through Little London, between the houses and then along a lane with woodland either side. After 500 metres you will reach the entrance to the woods on your left. The gate here is kept locked but you can stop here and continue on foot straight along the woodland track. Pannage Wood is set deep within this larger area of woodland and you will need to allow plenty of time for your visit to get there.

Please note the buyer will be provided with keys for vehicular access.

You will pass by several turnings on your left and right as you pass through the woodland until after approximately 1000 metres the track bends to the right and after a further 200 metres take a left turn and continue for 50 metres until you come across the entrance to Pannage Wood on your left..

Sat Nav / GPS note: The post code SP11 6JQ is for the point shown on the location map by the red dot.
