Boom Wood - SOLD, Cornwall - Nearly 5 acres, £55,000

Boom Wood - SOLD
Boom Wood - SOLD
Cornwall

An attractive mixed woodland of oak and beech with a broad level track running alongside an old leat.

Boom Wood has three quite different areas within it and these combine to create a wonderful mixed broadleaved woodland with so much to discover and enjoy.

The first area is to your right by the entrance has many oak tress which is best explored by following a track which heads off to the right.

The second area is where the track next to the leat curves to the right and heads south-west; here the woodland changes character, the oaks giving way to beech; tall and elegant and in autumn showering the woodland floor with their colourful leaves. Earlier in the year, the display of colour is provided by an equally attractive show of bluebells.

The third area is quite open, with a rather unusual mix of beech and bamboo. The bamboo is a reminder of the time when this was grown commercially in Lanivet and the surrounding area; over 160 acres were at one time given over to bamboo groves. This open area is an ideal place to set up camp or picnic.

Boom Wood is surrounded by other areas of private woodland all of which was probably once part of St. Benet’s Abbey. Boom is a Dutch surname meaning "tree" or indicating a robust person ("like a tree"). There are Dutch links to the nearby town of Bodmin via the Dutch cartographer Jodocus Hondius the Elder (1563–1612). The name of the town probably derives from the Cornish "Bod-meneghy", meaning "dwelling of or by the sanctuary of monks". Alternative spellings recorded include Botmenei in 1100, Bodmen in 1253, Bodman in 1377 and Bodmyn in 1522. The Bodman spelling also appears in sources and maps from the 16th and 17th centuries, most notably in the celebrated map of Cornwall produced by John Speed but actually engraved in Amsterdam in 1610 by the Dutch cartographer (published in London by Sudbury and Humble in 1626).

Throughout Boom Wood songbirds can be seen and heard, whilst the occasional buzzard swooping below the branches might surprise you. At ground level, four-legged residents and visitors include rabbits, foxes, badgers and roe deer.

This really is a woodland with a bit of everything.

Particulars and plans were prepared by our local manager, Stuart Brooking.

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.
