Brigante Wood, North Yorkshire - Over 4 acres, £45,000

Brigante Wood
Brigante Wood
North Yorkshire

A very peaceful pine wood with abundant wildlife and bluebells; signs of its ancient woodland heritage.

At the edge of the larger forest known as Brafferton Spring, Brigante Wood is a very tranquil woodland; its canopy comprised predominantly of Scots pine of around 60 years old, with coppiced hazel, ferns and bluebells.

The ride-stop entrance to the wood is reached via sound tracks and is found at the end of the stoned track surface, opposite a sizeable pond. Setting off on foot from here along an established grassy ride, after a few paces a path strikes off to the left. Following this route across a shallow drain, a bench is located alongside a group of coppiced hazel trees. This is a great spot to watch the sun go down, illuminating the red bark of the pines, or to rest awhile and observe the resident wildlife.

Many creatures make their home in the wood, coal tits, long tailed tits, blackbirds and chaffinches. Drawn by the mixture of evergreen pine, oak, birch, coppiced hazel bushes, blackberry and ferns, in the Spring the wood is filled with birdsong. There are also plenty of picturesque bluebells.

A couple of old grassy rides cross the wood, these offer long views and glimpses of passing animals. A drain also runs in the south western corner of the wood and has a clear route alongside it.

The western boundary of the wood is formed by a section of disused railway line. Typical hedge species grow on its banks, hawthorn, blackthorn, willow and some impressive wild roses. From the line (now a farm track), there are views over the fields towards the North York Moors and the Kilburn White Horse.

The wood is named after the Brigantes, the Celtic tribe controlling Northern Britain during the Roman occupation. Nearby Aldborough, Isurium Brigantum, was the administrative centre, where the Roman road between York and Corbridge crossed the river Swale. The Aldborough Roman Site museum, run by English Heritage, contains relics of the Roman town, including mosaic pavements.

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.
