Tinneyhall Wood, Cornwall - About 9 ½ acres, £59,000

Tinneyhall Wood

Tinney Hall is a hamlet close by the small hilltop village of Lewannick, which is centred around a crossroads. This is unusual for Cornwall, where the villages tend to stretch along sheltered valleys. When Methodism arrived in the 18th century the local vicar, the appropriately named George Parsons, successfully used all his influence to prevent meetings taking place, and it was only after his death that the Methodists were able to build their own chapel, whilst Tinney Hall had a chapel used by the Bible Christians. Trelaske (where the woodlands are located) is another hamlet near to Lewannick and is recorded as Trelosch in the Domesday Survey of 1086.

Tinneyhall Wood is approached by taking the well-made track which runs along the southern boundary, passes through another area of private woodland, then bends round to the right. From the point where the track enters Tinneyhall Wood, the woodland extends to both sides of the track.

To the left is an area of mature conifers and broadleaves with a stream along the northern boundary. It is easy to identify places where deer regularly cross the stream. The woodland floor in this part of the wood is a typical mix of bluebells and wild garlic. Also running across this section, almost parallel to the track, is a mill leat which at one time carried water to drive the wheel at Trelaske Mill, some 1.5 miles or so to the east.

Just off the track, to the left is a "lay-by" - a short, level section of private track which makes a great place to park, stack firewood and so on.

The majority of Tinneyhall Wood lies to the right (south) of the access track. The western 'half' of this area comprises mostly mature conifers with hazel, holly and other species beneath. Again, the woodland floor is carpeted with bluebells making for a spectacular display in April/May time. The western portion contains conifers which are well spaced, having been extensively thinned. Between the firs, natural regeneration of hazel, sycamore and willow is much in evidence. A zig-zag track leads up through this part of the wood. Pause at the bench beside the track and look back over the woodland; from here you can see a nearby lake, river and the countryside beyond; a marvellous panorama.

At the top of the zig-zag track, a broad, level track takes you to a grassy clearing by a small disused quarry (a great source for stone for track repairs). This is a very sheltered spot and would be a good place to pitch a tent. The broad track peters out just beyond the quarry, but smaller tracks, made by the deer lead further across the woodland. From this same point an old, low boundary bank can be made out. There is a lot of hazel along this bank which runs down to the main access track.

As well as the deer, badgers, foxes and rabbits are present within the woodland; buzzards circle overhead and many varieties of songbird will be heard more than seen. Otter are often seen in the nearby river Inny and so might well use the boundary stream at times when the river is in spate.

Tinneyhall is a woodland with a wide variety of habitats and whilst some of the gradients may appear rather daunting, if you take the shortest route - taking a gentler course across the woodland reveals many sights, sounds (and smells when the garlic is fresh) which might otherwise be missed.

A report has been prepared detailing the ancient woodland areas of the wood and providing useful guidance and information on restoration options. A copy of the report is available upon request.

Particulars and plans were prepared by our local manager, Dick White.
