Carpenter Wood - SOLD, North Yorkshire - Just under 3 acres, £39,000

Carpenter Wood - SOLD

On leaving the road and driving onto the good stone track, Carpenter Wood is situated immediately to the right and follows the northern edge of the forest. The initial introduction to the wood is a narrow finger with a number of substantial pine and spruce, along with generous oak and sycamores. Where the wood adjoins the field, large old hazel coppice stools are numerous and give a potential active woodland owner the opportunity to re-establish a coppice cycle, cutting hazel poles for hedging stakes, traditional garden products or charcoal making.

At the point where a stream crossed the shared track, the woodland widens out and has many straight grown oak trees, beneath which are more coppice stools. The woodland floor is quite clear and easy to access, with the exception of a number of sculptural (gnarly) oak logs, encrusted with mosses and lichens; the cracked remnants of a very large tree that once stood here and almost like a fossil now.

In places on the forest floor, patches of dog’s mercury are dotted with pretty violets. Here and there scratches, scrapings and peck marks give clues to the eating and sleeping habits of the resident wildlife. Carpenter Wood is a great location for carrying out conservation projects and there is plenty of timber for wood craft projects and a personal firewood supply.

From the stone surfaced ride stop entrance, it’s a short walk to an oak topped bench. Why not rest here a while, with a cuppa, soak in the surroundings and listen to the local birdlife?

The name Carpenter Wood is derived from some interesting local family history. In 1817 the heiress of Kiplin, at neighbouring Kiplin Hall married the 4th Earl Tyrconnel. The marriage was childless, so rather than let the family line die out she settled the inheritance on a cousin, a member of the Talbot family. In order to receive the inheritance, the young Talbot, who was raised as a Catholic, had to change his name to Carpenter and become an Anglican and marry a Protestant. This he did, even though he had to endure an official investigation every seven years by a team of Anglican clergy. The upheaval in his private life did not stop Talbot/Carpenter from rising to the rank of Admiral in the navy!

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.
