Tarrant Wood, Hampshire - About 5 ⅔ acres, £75,000

Tarrant Wood

The fading sunlight of autumn is an enchanting time in the woods. The last of the summer greenery retreats into the woodland floor to seek refuge from the ravages of the coming winter.

There is however still life plenty to be discovered in this mature beech woodland as small mammals make preparations and feed up on later summer provisions of seeds and berries. The moist air is now perfect for the fruiting fungal blooms on the deadwood of last year's fallen trees.

The drooping boughs of the giant beech trees, are relieved of their summer growth as golden leaves fall to the forest floor and the watery light floods deep into the woods. And so the process begins again. The roots and bulbs lie dormant, covered in the deep leaf litter in readiness for spring, of which the snowdrop will be one of the first to appear.

Tarrant Wood is named after the nunnery that was located nearby dating from the thirteenth century, when it received royal patronage form King Henry III and after which the nearby village of Hurstbourne Tarrant takes its name.

Tarrant Wood is a true refuge from the frantic pace of modern life. Located near the end of a long private woodland track it enjoys a peaceful spot at the edge of open fields. For centuries the seasons have come and gone and the woodland has seen the passing of many generations. They have supported both animal and human life in many different ways; as a source of wood fuel and building material and as a vital food supply. In more recent time they have also become a place of recreation and education.

The surrounding area is characterised by its rural beauty and extensive agriculture. Nearby Andover is a useful staging post for woodland supplies.

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 you will see the name sign and coloured markings for Tarrant Wood on your right.
