Shalden Wood - SOLD, Hampshire - About 4 acres, £55,000

Shalden Wood - SOLD

A well maintained track leads into the wood and guides the visitor through a towering woodland corridor into a different world. Arriving at Shalden Wood, only the sunlight filtering through the tree line from the fields to the east is a reminder of the everyday world beyond. The haven of the wood provides a new world of opportunity for wildlife conservation and for small scale woodland management. Some of the bramble that has proliferated in recent years beneath areas of Douglas fir has been recently cleared. Other areas have been left as important wildlife habitat as this dense thicket is important daytime cover for resident roe deer and ground nesting habitat for blackcap and brambling. There is enormous scope here to plant a greater mix of broadleaf species to add further to the existing sycamore, oak and chestnut.

There are some attractive clearings within Shalden Wood and these make ideal spaces to set up base camp and a place to retreat at the end of a day of woodland exploration. These clearings make ideal camping spots and well hidden locations for the siting of a tool store or shelter. There is lots of helpful information on this subject on this website under the heading, 'owning' at the top of the page.

The wood is named after the local village of Shalden. This small settlement is not just an insignificant suburb of Alton but has a long history as a parish and manor passing through the hands of many noble families dating back from the Domesday survey. Although perhaps less noble there is welcoming population in situ to this day.

Nearby the historic market town of Alton is a thriving community with much of its long past evident in the local architecture. Once a centre for fabric production and until recently for commercial brewing Alton provides a comprehensive range of facilities to the woodland owner. The woods are easily accessed from all directions with good connections to major roads and the M3.

These particulars and plans 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.

From Junction 5 of the M3 follow signs for Alton south on the B3349. About half a mile after the village of Blounce there is a left turning by the 'Golden Pot' restaurant at the junction with Froyle Road. Turn left here then right after fifty metres into Old Odiham Road. Follow this road for a couple of miles into Shalden where just after Linden House on your right and the 40mph speed restriction painted on the road is a field gate on the right that provides access to the woods. You can pull in here to the recessed gateway. This is kept locked but you can contact Daniel at Woodlands.co.uk for the code so that you can proceed along the track by vehicle and through the second gate into the woods.

After passing through the second gate the track bears left after 150 metres. Continue to follow this track for a further 600 metres until you come to the entrance to Shalden Wood on your left.
