Eddisbury Way Wood - SOLD, Cheshire West - Almost 4 acres, £59,000

Eddisbury Way Wood - SOLD
Eddisbury Way Wood - SOLD
Cheshire West

A small and manageable woodland with good access, and a mixture of conifer and broadleaf trees. Mostly very gently sloping, with a steep bank occupying a small proportion of the wood at the back.

Eddisbury Way Wood is a rarity to be offered for sale in Cheshire: a small and manageable woodland with good access, and a mixture of conifer and broadleaf trees. The majority of the wood is very gently sloping, with a steep bank occupying a small proportion of the wood at the back. Access is directly off a minor country road through a new wooden gate, and there is enough room to park off the road in front of the gate.

There is a lovely sweet chestnut near the bottom of the bank, and a recently brush-cut footpath that leads you to it, and to a handmade bench, situated just in front of the steep bank. This spot gives you a wide view of the woodland, and enables you to take in the scale of the trees, either as you prepare yourself to climb to the top, or for a rest on the way back down!

This woodland is quite open, with a number of natural clearings, which could be useful for camping, and as a base for woodland activities. It also offers a great opportunity to design the future of the wood by planting trees to provide a young understorey beneath the larch, and to provide more privacy. Larch is the most prevalent species, but there is a scattering of pine trees and a variety of broadleaf trees, particularly around the boundaries.

It is possible to drive into the wood, Although the entrance is not stoned, the ground has proved to be dry enough even in winter to drive into the wood in an ordinary car.

The wood is named after the Eddisbury Way, a 17 mile walk from near Frodsham to Burwardsley, that passes along the road next to this wood (but note there are no public footpaths within the wood). At 972 acres, Delamere Forest, managed by the Forestry Commission, is the largest area of woodland in Cheshire, and is only a few miles north east of the wood. The small village of Kelsall is located about a mile away. There you'll find a couple of very attractive pubs, including the Royal Oak and The Morris Dancer, a Co-op and a medical centre.

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.
