Dale Top, near Scarborough - Nearly 6 ½ acres, £65,000

Dale Top

Growing on a level plateau above scenic Troutsdale, Dale Top is bordered by heather covered earth banks to the north east and north west. The western boundary is formed by a stone track, which provides the main access to the land from the lane in the valley. In the south east, the boundary is marked with timber posts where open heather moorland, rich in ecology, gives way to bilberry and naturally seeded groups of pine trees.

Throughout the woodland area, pine and birch are the dominant species with some rowan or mountain ash too. Glades and open areas offer opportunities for planting, a suitable place to camp with family and friends, or as a base for other woodland operations. The open understory gives excellent access on foot.

An oak-topped bench is located a short distance from the ride-stop entrance. From here there are views over an open section of moorland as well as into the wood of Dale Top itself. It is a great place to stop for a while and take in the serenity of the place.

Deer tracks cross the heather moor in the south eastern part of the land and birds are regularly observed such as buzzards, kestrels, bullfinch and other small wood and moorland birds.

The North York Moors became a national park in 1952. There are records of 12,000 archaeological sites and features throughout the National Park, of which 700 are scheduled ancient monuments. Human history in the area dates back to the last ice age when, around 10,000 years ago the cold temperatures rose above the growing point of 5.5 °C; plant and animal life gradually re-established and humans re-colonised plateaus and dales as hunter-gatherers.

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.
