Windsor Wood - SOLD, Buckinghamshire - Nearly 4 acres, £49,000

Windsor Wood - SOLD

Windsor Wood is an ancient, semi natural woodland. It dates back to before 1600 AD and over the last decades has been recognised as an excellent example of beech Chiltern woodland.

Windsor Wood forms part of a much larger area of ancient woodland known as East Wood. In 1996 the Royal Agricultural Society of England awarded this woodland a silver medal certificate for natural regeneration and in 1998 it won the Chiltern woodlands award for demonstrating the highest standards of silvaculture management.

Previously managed to maximise the capital value of the timber value whilst allowing regeneration to establish for future generations. Dotted throughout this beech woodland you will also find oaks, holly, hawthorn and cherry which add a nice variety. A number of old rides, or woodland tracks run through the wood, allowing easy access throughout the wood.

As you enter the woodland a wide track stretches out in front of you. A bench has been placed to the right hand side of this. Please do take a moment to sit here and enjoy your surroundings. As you venture further into the woodland it is easy to disappear from sight as there is excellent ground cover of mostly natural regenerated beech and holly which provides year-round leaf cover.

Magnificent mature beech trees tower above the woodland and you often see red kites circling overhead or perched in the upper limbs of these trees. Other wildlife of note includes deer, foxes and badgers.

This is an ideal woodland for family forestry with lots of dead wood available for the log burner and plenty of places in which to camp or picnic. The northern corner of the wood has some especially pretty glades.

The wood is named after the Windsor after The Windsor chair industry which was one of the main contributors and reasons why there are so many fine beech woodlands in Buckinghamshire. The design of the chair was probably a development of West Country, 'stick-back' chairs, but the evidence of origin is not certain. It is thought that the first Windsor chair made its appearance in the county of Buckinghamshire, where the main centre of production eventually moved to High Wycombe. The first Windsors were of the comb-back variety. By the 18th century steam-bending was being used to produce the characteristic "bow" of the Windsor chair.

Easily found and accessed due to an excellent stoned track suitable for most vehicles. Located just off the A40 being under 40 miles from London and under 20 miles from Oxford it has great possibilities for anyone looking for a country retreat. The village of Stokenchurch is less than a mile from the woodland and has excellent village shops.
