Buccas Wood, Buckinghamshire - About 2 ⅔ acres, £33,000

Buccas Wood

Buccas Wood is an absolute gem which forms part of a much larger area of woodland known as East Wood. Small and easy to manage with the benefit of an excellent stone access track suitable for most vehicles, it offers a perfect start to family forestry.

Beech trees predominate and these have been well managed in the past such that the larger area of woodland of which Buccas Wood forms part won a silver medal from the Royal Agricultural Society in 1996 and in 1998 it won the Chilterns Woodland Award.

Made up of trees of all ages with an incredible seed bank of beech mast which will provide plenty of natural regeneration for the future.

Buccas Wood forms part of an ancient area of woodland dating back to at least 1600 AD. The trees have over the centuries been harvested for timber and new trees grown on naturally. This has created a wonderful natural feel to the woodland.

Beech is an excellent timber with many uses from furniture making to providing logs for heating your home. The woodland is named after Bucca the local Saxon lord of Buckinghamshire or shire, home of Bucca.

The woodland is gently sloping and a number of old forestry rides (tracks) cross the woodland allowing good access throughout. Whilst in contrast in some parts it is incredibly thick with a good understorey of beech trees which provide cover for wildlife.

A number of small glades offer secluded places to set up camp out of sight of the main access track. Some brash piles in the woodland could provide the perfect firewood for a small camp fire.

The woodland is also home to lots of wildlife. If you arrive early in the morning you may see a roe or muntjac deer. A site at nearby Stokenchurch was chosen as the first release point for red kites in 1989. The Chilterns were deemed to be the perfect habitat for re-establishing these birds of prey and this woodland is no exception. You will frequently see or hear one of these beautiful birds as they glide overhead.

Easily found and accessed off the A40 being under an hour from London and 30 minutes from Oxford. The village of Stokenchurch is less than a mile from the woodland and has excellent variety of village shops.

Particulars and plans were prepared by our local manager, Matt Marples.

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.
