Clement Wood - SOLD, Devon - Around 2 ¾ acres, £32,000

Clement Wood - SOLD
Clement Wood - SOLD
Devon

A charming mixed-age conifer woodland with a pleasant aspect allowing plenty of light and benefitting from many features including a clearing, old wood banks and a rundown forestry shed ideal for upgrading.

Clement Wood is set on the fringes of Dartmoor National Park with good access from a quiet country lane along a stoned forest track. The woodland has an old wood bank running west to east through its centre with two very different forest environments and habitats either side of this.

To the south of this wood bank is a predominantly a well thinned mature conifer woodland consisting of mostly Sitka spruce planted in 1969. There is plenty of good timber here either to harvest and replant or to use for small scale forestry projects over time on site including perhaps building a new forestry store to replace the existing one found within the woodland. There is also a clearing at the east of this area of the woodland which is excellent habitat for butterflies.

To the north of the old wood bank is a conifer woodland planted in 2013. This provides a very different habitat and can be managed over time by a series of thinning operations to produce a crop of timber.

Access to the woodland is via a stoned forestry track with a second alternative access track at the north. There is also a link via the main forestry track to a bridleway further north of the area where you can walk or mountain bike up to the hamlet of Sigford, where 3 rivers meet. Sigford is within the Parish of Ilsington, a quaint Dartmoor village with a pub and fantastic walks around the east of Dartmoor.

The name Clement Wood derives from the sculptor W.A. Clement who carved the writings on the Ten Commandments stones nearby on Dartmoor: http://www.legendarydartmoor.co.uk/ten_command.htm

As well as being set in a perfect location to explore Dartmoor there are other nearby places of interest including the quaint town of Ashburton and a short drive away is the popular small town of Totnes.

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.
