Crowe Wood - SOLD, North Yorkshire - Over 2 acres, £25,000

Crowe Wood - SOLD

Crowe Wood is a small, level and manageable area of broadleaved woodland, located on the northern edge of a larger forest with views out to the surrounding countryside. It is well served by an excellent stone track, running along the southern boundary and a ride stop turning and timber stacking area located in the south-eastern corner: this is a place where it’s possible to pull a vehicle off the track and park within the wood.

Dappled sunlight reaches down to the woodland floor to a carpet of moss, ferns and dogs mercury – typical of an ancient broadleaved woodland. Bramble patches and the spiralling tendrils of honeysuckle can also be found beneath the trees; many of which are in coppiced form including sycamore, willow, ash, wych-elm and hazel.

The over-storey, although not dense, is made up of well-spaced and straight grown larger broadleaved trees such as oak, ash, sycamore and some birch. The wood offers a plentiful supply of working material for greenwood crafters.

Beyond the ride-stop entrance there is a useful clearing bathed in sunlight that would be a very good working area or base-camp for sitting around the fire with friends.

The boundaries of the wood are the track in the south, on marked posts to the east, adjoining the field to the north and against a watercourse along the western edge.

Back in the eighteenth Century in 1722, Christopher Crowe, from whom the wood takes its name, purchased the neighbouring Kiplin estate from his stepson Charles Calvert (who had never lived there). Not of a nobility, Crowe’s wealth and power grew from being British Consul in Livorno, Italy – enjoying a lucrative contract for supplying the British naval fleet with wine and olive oil, in addition he collected antiquities for the British aristocracy. Purchasing Kiplin Hall at around a hundred years old, he found the place to lack comfort and set about a major renovation programme and also enlarged the Kiplin estate to some 4,000 acres.

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.
