Bull Wood, Yorkshire - Nearly 5 acres, £59,500

Bull Wood

Bull Wood is a peaceful and diverse woodland with good access tracks, set within a larger wooded area known as Sutton Wood. The entrance is at a ride stop, located off a newly stoned track. From here there is an easy way through a belt of vigorous, young birch and pine trees to an area of quite majestic mature Scots pine, beneath which there are bracken and ferns criss-crossed by a network of animal tracks. Plenty of thinnings could be taken from here to support domestic firewood use and indeed the openings or glades created during thinning, would further enhance the flora with benefit to the insects and animal life within the wood. A wooden bench can be found at the edge of the birch overlooking the pines, an excellent spot to quietly observe resident wildlife.

Signs of mammals are evident throughout Bull Wood but there is a great deal of bird life too, from buzzards wheeling overhead down to the small tits and goldcrests which feed in the canopy. Butterflies also abound along the tracks and in the sunlight of open glades. The wood is 'L' shaped and the lower part of the 'L', beyond the path, comprises of a belt of very well established native broadleaved woodland which is also excellent for wildlife and has the added draw of a small watercourse running along the boundary.

Alongside the path there is a grove of mature beech trees, with bluebells and campion beneath; on the bank which falls to the watercourse, there are hawthorns, oak and great old willow trees plus the odd wild fruit bush. From here there are very attractive views out across the low-lying ings land which borders the River Derwent, just a field away.

Bull Wood occupies quite a strategic position alongside the River Derwent. In the immediate area there are two historic moated sites; one nearby at St Lois Farm and the other, Giant’s Hill Motte (within Sutton Wood), both thought to have been built to defend the river crossing. The Derwent flows from Fylingdales Moor in the North York Moors National Park, through the Vales of Pickering and York, joining the River Ouse at Barmby on the Marsh. The old course of the river used to flow further east, entering the Humber east of Howden.

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.
