Brigg Wood - SOLD, East Yorkshire - Just over 3 acres, £42,000

Brigg Wood - SOLD
Brigg Wood - SOLD
East Yorkshire

A wonderful mixture of mature oak, majestic pines and young native trees; Brigg Wood is a haven for nature lovers seeking variety within a wood.

Situated at the southerly edge of Sutton Wood, Brigg Wood is reached by good stone tracks and has an entrance near its south-eastern corner. Huge old pine trees dominate the southern edge along with characterful oaks, coppiced hazel and woodland wildflowers and border the public footpath leading to the River Derwent.

From the entrance, a path leads through the youngest part of the wood. Surrounded by the songs of chiffchaffs, willow warblers and wrens, you will notice that young oaks and rowans, planted in protective tubes around ten years ago, are establishing well and, along with younger self-seeded birch, will grow up in no time and are already creating a good deal of privacy. There’s plenty of scope to manage and shape this area to suit your individual priorities, be it glades amongst the bracken for occasional camping, increased tree planting, or for habitat to support specific types of wildlife. Much wildlife is present already and the tracks of mammals are easy to spot.

About half-way across the wood, at a turn in the path, the trees are much more mature. Large birches give way to a grove of cathedral-like oak trees, straight grown and thriving. Here and there are dotted holly and rhododendron bushes, giving evergreen cover and their flowers are filled with the thrum of buzzing bumblebees. A bench is situated just within these taller trees, where bullfinches and blackbirds join the chorus of birdsong. Spring is initially heralded in Brigg Wood with wild daffodils followed by masses of bluebells, while later, foxgloves and heavenly-scented honeysuckle provide a succession of pollen and nectar for insects.

The western edge of the wood is formed by a permissive footpath with flower-filled verges, part of a circular walk around the wider wood. Beyond the path, the land drops away down to the ings, low-lying land alongside the River Derwent. The wood takes its name from the old pronunciation of ‘Bridge’. The road from York is carried over the Derwent by a bridge mentioned as early as 1396, which may have replaced a ferry, recorded in 1368. It’s long been an important strategic crossing point and the road now occupies a raised causeway across the meadows.

There is a great deal to love and discover throughout the seasons in Brigg Wood, such as the gnarled roots and trunks of old oak trees and the scraped out beds of roe deer amongst the ferns. You may find a woodpecker hole or a spiralling birch trunk, where the twining honeysuckle stems have contorted the host tree, dew on cobwebs in autumn or the mew of buzzards overhead. Let us know what wonderful things reveal themselves to you, on your visit.

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.
