Cropwold Wood - SOLD, Nottinghamshire - Over 4 ½ acres, £55,000

Cropwold Wood - SOLD
Cropwold Wood - SOLD
Nottinghamshire

A secluded woodland in the heart of a larger forest: escape from everyday life and absorb the peace.

Cropwold Wood offers the ideal get-away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A short walk from the ridestop entrance, where a vehicle may be parked off the track, an oak bench is conveniently located where one can take in the full tranquillity of the surroundings and observe any passing wildlife. Roe and muntjac deer are present in the forest, buzzards circle overhead and flocks of small birds frequent the woodland canopy.

Well spaced Scots pine make up around one third of the wood, with their orange/red trunks and green needles making a lovely contrast to clear blue skies. To the west and adding further interest and a cornerstone of woodland diversity, there is also a wide band of straight grown oak trees, mostly of around 50 years old though some are older. The understorey is made up of hawthorn, willows and the next generation of seeded oaks.

A small fenced pen, once used for pheasants, occupies a spot towards the northern edge of the wood, while beyond this there is a narrow section of wild meadow. This has been cut for hay each summer, encouraging flora that would otherwise be lost in high grass and is excellent butterfly habitat, along with the woodland edge and wide hedgerow that follows the bank of a stream running along the northern boundary. This valuable watercourse runs throughout the year and is a great draw for wildlife and insects alike.

Cropwold Wood could provide a useful resource of home firewood provision as well as timber for green wood craft projects.

The word ‘crop’ is derived from old English for ‘a round hill’ and wold means ‘a piece of high ground, open or uncultivated, like a moor’. The surrounding area includes many villages with the name crop, such as Cropwell Bishop and Cropwell Butler; Cropwell Bishop being the larger of the two. The village is home to Cropwell Bishop Creamery, famous for its award winning Stilton and other fine English cheeses.

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.
