Glamis Wood £65,000 Freehold

  • Broughton , Scunthorpe , Lincolnshire
  • nearly 4 acres
  • East Anglia


Glamis Wood is a delight to visit with not only its wide variety of trees and excellent access but the fact it is surrounded by quiet private woodland. A feeling of wellbeing is generated by time spent quietly with nature.

Glamis Wood is nestled in a larger area of well managed forest on the edge of Scunthorpe next to the village of Broughton a few minutes’ drive from the M180.

The woodland is level with fertile soil up to a metre in depth that sits on a sub base of loose limestone making the woodland free draining. The ground flora in this part includes a number of ferns, such as the scaly male, hard shield and bracken. Amongst the vegetation you will find a variety of wildflowers including primroses, violets, early purple orchid and red campion. Dog’s mercury and grasses grow on the minor tracks.

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.


The woodland contains fine quality timber as well as important firewood for the homeowner looking at reducing fuel bills.

A wide variety of trees are found in the woodland including sycamore, beech, oak, pine and silver birch.


The mixed habitat of woodland and open farmland has created a hospitable environment for wildlife, deer are regular visitors along with foxes and hares. An old Badgers set is a delight to sit and watch at dusk.


Level and well stocked with mature trees. The wood has an old track running diagonally through the woodland which provides excellent access. Plenty of small glades offer opportunities to camp surrounded by nature. A night under the stars creates lifelong memories.

Access, tracks and footpaths

The woodland has the benefit of an excellent stoned access track suitable for most family vehicles providing all year access to the woodland.

There are no public footpaths running through the wood.


A perfect family wood, good for camping and numerous outdoor activities. Great childhood adventures could take place within this woodland.

For those seeking a tranquil retreat it could be ideal for meditation. The simple experience of being calm and quiet amongst the trees, observing nature around you whilst breathing deeply. Perhaps the ultimate remedy to todays life.

Local area and history

Historically it was once used as a depot during the Second World War. The trees gave cover to vital supplies used to keep the local Royal Airforce running and for that reason has excellent woodland tracks which are suitable for most cars.

The woodland is located close to an outcrop of high-lime-content ironstone (25% iron average) from a seam of the Lias Group strata which dates from the Early Jurassic period and runs north–south through Lincolnshire.
