Potters Wood - SOLD, Dorset - About 3 acres, £47,000

Potters Wood - SOLD
Potters Wood - SOLD
Dorset

A small woodland with enormous variety of tree species and habitat, and the last available woodland on offer in this part of east Dorset for the time being.

A length of newly improved private track leads through surrounding woodland to the entrance to Potters Wood. From here the enormous appeal of this mixed woodland is immediately apparent. Large ancient oaks stand alongside the old logging track that provides access to the wood and forms the north western boundary. Once within Potters Wood a mix of dense holly, hazel and birch form thick cover that links sunny clearings, where established woodland grasses, foxgloves and ferns thrive in the open clearings. Above this the massive boughs of giant oak embrace the woodland from above and protect the towering Scots pine clustered in the centre of the wood.

Venture further into the woodland and you will come across an ancient bank and ditch at the south eastern boundary that keeps this woodland so well drained even at the wettest times of year. Here the evidence of once active hazel coppice stands amongst the bluebells where the tracks of badgers and deer that have set up home in this hospitable environment mark the woodland floor on their way to night time forays into surrounding countryside.

The wider surrounding area is well renowned for its natural beauty. The small towns and villages of this area have a proud tradition of rural craft dating back to the eighteenth century when the woodland and heathland environment provided the essential raw materials for broom and hurdle making. The local area was also renowned for clay production and the wood takes its name from the production of rustic pottery that was manufactured in nearby Verwood until the closure of the last pottery in 1952.

Elsewhere beyond Potters Wood the pretty communities of Verwood and Cranborne are on hand to provide refreshment and other essential supplies or Salisbury and the South Coast are readily accessible a little further afield.

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 the south, after passing Ringwood, leave the A31 at the B3081 junction signposted Verwood and follow the B3081 north on the Verwood Road.

Continue your journey through Verwood town centre along Station Road, until you reach the roundabout signposted to Alderholt and Cranborne along Champtoceaux Road.

After a couple of miles the road bears round to the right and The Heavy Horse Centre is on your left. After a further 500 metres there is a sharp left hand bend as the road becomes Batterley Drove. The entrance to the woods is located a few metres along a private road on your right on the apex of this bend. There is a 'Woodlands For Sale' sign by the entrance gate, where you can park (taking care not to cause an obstruction) and continue along the woodland track on foot. (The new owner will be provided with a key access for the entrance gate)

The track continues into the woods, initially bearing right, at which point you will see the pink boundary markings for Potters Wood on your left and then the entrance after a further 150 metres.

From Salisbury take the A354 Blandford Road for approximately 13 miles and at the roundabout, take the first exit signposted Ringwood B3081. Continue for 3 miles turning left at Parsonage Lane onto B3078 towards Edmondsham.

Keep left through Edmondsham and after a further mile turn left onto the Edmondsham Road and pick up direction by the Heavy Horse centre as above.

Sat Nav / GPS note: The post code BH21 5QY is for the point shown on the location map by the red dot.
