SOLD: Throop Wood £35,000 Freehold


The woodland fittingly takes its name from the an old English word for an outlying farm. Its tranquil rural location makes this an ideal opportunity for engagement with nature and management of a natural environment that has experienced very little intervention in recent years. There are now however some pathways cleared through the undergrowth and a number of clearings with woodland views and uplifting glimpses of the open farmland beyond. These are ideal points from which to further explore the woodland.

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.


Throop Wood supports a healthy mix of broadleaf and conifer, including some fine examples of giant sycamore, Scots pine and oak. The enlarged clearings provide a good opportunity for further planting to enhance this attractive woodland environment.


Areas of dense thicket provide ideal cover for deer. Muntjac and roe deer can be seen roaming freely through the wood and often lie low until breaking cover only when disturbed, providing woodland encounters at very close quarters on occasion.


Elsewhere within the wood evidence of running water can be identified in the form of channels carved into the woodland floor where the water flows during wetter times of year
