St Agnes Wood - SOLD, Norfolk - Nearly 4 acres, £65,000

St Agnes Wood - SOLD
St Agnes Wood - SOLD
Norfolk

Away from the disturbance of roads and human population, St Agnes Wood is a retreat to the restorative effects of the natural environment.

This secluded woodland offers the woodlander the perfect opportunity for family forestry. It is conveniently located to nearby Aylsham and the city of Norwich. A real asset is the Marriots Way which passes just to the north of the woodland. Thus it would be possible to walk, cycle or even ride a horse all the way from Norwich to the woodland, only having to use a road for the very last section.

The woodland is mixed, predominantly mature conifer with self-seeded silver birch and an understorey of holly and sweet chestnut. It is a wildlife haven, being the perfect habitat for hares and muntjac deer as well as foxes, buzzards and squirrels.

The woodland has plenty of places to camp with some open glades, in contrast there are several denser areas which give privacy. It benefits from being part of a much larger private woodland all of which is covered by the Woodlands.co.uk protective covenant.

Trees

The woodland has a good variety of species and age of trees. Whilst predominately soft wood, silver birch, sweet chestnut and holly break up the woodland and provide cover.

Wildlife

Roe and muntjac deer are regularly seen as they are territorial. The trees offer a home to numerous birdlife including buzzards, woodpeckers and owls. Otters are also known to be in the area.

Features

The woodland gently slopes towards the east and having two sides open to fields it catches sunlight for much of the day. A series of internal tracks make it easy to move about the woodland from its southern edge to the more secluded northern reaches. There are plenty of areas within the woodland to camp or have a picnic and spend time immersed in nature.

Access, tracks and footpaths

The woodland is accessed via an excellent stoned track. A number of internal tracks cross the woodland and a footpath runs up the eastern edge giving access to the Marriots way.

Rights and covenants

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.

Activities

St Agnes Wood provides the opportunity for a new owner to engage in family forestry. Managing a mixed woodland and learning bushcraft skills is a great way to escape modern life. Camping or building woodland hides and all sorts of other outdoor activities can be done here.

Local area and history

The woodland is named after St Agnes church in nearby Cawston. This is one of the most beautiful and exciting historic churches in Norfolk. Thousands of visitors are drawn to Cawston each year to see the superb 15th-century hammer beam angel roof and the glorious late medieval painted screen.

The church was built by Michael de la Pole, Earl of Suffolk, in the early years of the 14th century. The De la Pole arms adorn the porch and tower. The tower is stunning, standing almost 120 feet high, but unlike most Norfolk towers it is relatively plain, without all the pinnacles, that grace so many other towers in the county.
