De Wymundale Wood - SOLD, Suffolk - Nearly 2 ¼ acres, £29,000

De Wymundale Wood - SOLD
De Wymundale Wood - SOLD
Suffolk

A compact secluded woodland.

Anyone looking at dipping their toes into family forestry would be hard pressed to find such a nice piece of woodland, centrally located within a larger protected area of woodland with a wonderful feeling of seclusion.

De Wymundale Wood forms the centre of a much larger woodland known as Titsal Wood set in a picturesque location to the west of the village of Shadingfield This is one of a small cluster of ancient woods in the parishes of Brampton, Shadingfield, Willingham, Sotterly and Wrentham. It is one of only five woods classified by Oliver Rackham as medieval woods in Blything. Medieval woods were not necessarily natural woods with a species continuity with the original wildwood. It is likely that since before Domesday they had been intensively managed by the local community as a renewable resource. Every five to twenty years the wood was cut down and allowed to grow again from the stools to yield underwood- poles and rods used for fuel, fencing, wattle and daub walling. It was common to have, scattered among the underwood, oaks that had been allowed to stand for 25 to 100 years, which when felled were a source of timber for beams and planks for building houses and barns.

The woodland clearly shows signs of this ancient management with predominantly hornbeam coppice interspersed with oaks and ash trees. The woodland is deemed such a good example of Suffolk hornbeam coppice it has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. A future owner has the advantage of not only the protection this offers but free advice and guidance from Natural England.

It is home to a vast array of wildlife, including woodcocks, pheasants, hares and deer. Three species of deer were seen within the woodland in one day, Chinese water deer, muntjac and fallow. A bench has been placed conveniently beside an oak tree: please do sit here when visiting and take in the atmosphere.

The woodland is aptly named after Alan de Wymundale a local land owner of the area towards the end of the thirteenth century.

The nearby village of Shadingfield has an excellent farm shop and a number of pubs are within cycling distance. Located about one hour's drive from both Ipswich and Norwich and being only a short drive from the town of Beccles the woodland is easily accessible offering anyone a perfect rural retreat from the hustle of modern day living.

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.
