Cork Wood - SOLD, North Yorkshire - Over 5 ½ acres., £70,000

Cork Wood - SOLD
Cork Wood - SOLD
North Yorkshire

A peaceful pine wood with abundant wildlife and numerous signs of its ancient woodland heritage.

Within a larger forest known as Brafferton Spring, Cork Wood is a tranquil woodland, its canopy comprised predominantly of well spaced Scots pine of around 60 years old.

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.

Trees

Apart from Scots pine, other species are present too, including tall oak, birch, the odd holly bush and coppiced hazels, a legacy of its Planted Ancient Woodland (or PAWS) status, which means that there is evidence that it has been wooded here since, at least, 1600 AD. The woodland floor is filled with ferns and bluebells; a beautiful sight in the Spring.

Wildlife

Buzzards and tawny owls live in the forest and you can often hear them call. Other woodland birds can be found in great numbers such as tree creepers, nuthatches, woodpeckers, thrushes, blackbirds and tits and during the breeding season, the birdsong is tremendous.

Mammals are also present and you can find their tracks and signs. Roe deer pass through and make their beds amongst the ferns.

Features

The pines are quite majestic, especially when the low evening sun enriches the ruddy colours of their upper trunks.

Walking along a cleared path, leading from the entrance, a bench can be found, close to an impressive hazel coppice. This could be a great place to cut back some ground flora for a glade, as a base for wood craft or occasional camping

A drain runs from about halfway up the eastern boundary to the southern boundary. Water course within a wood is always a draw for wildlife.

Access, tracks and footpaths

The ride-stop entrance to Cork Wood is situated along a good stone track on the eastern boundary. Other tracks, also with a stone surface, form the northern and southern boundary.

Within the wood, it is quite easy to clear paths and there are several old routes used by forestry machinery in the past.

Rights and covenants

There are no public rights of way within the wood.

Shooting and mineral rights are included with the sale.

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.

Activities

Cork Wood would suit wildlife enthusiasts, seeking a conservation project or perhaps a family wanting to connect more closely with nature.

Local area and history

The wood is named after the Earls of Cork who have successively been trustees of the charity which held the Manor of Brafferton from 1694 to 1990. The fourth Earl of Cork was also the third Earl of Burlington. Known as Lord Burlington, he was the famous architect who published Andrea Palladio's designs of Ancient Roman architecture and designed Chiswick House with William Kent as well as the Assembley Rooms in York, in 1730, to provide accommodation for dancing and other social activities.
