Granvilles Wood - SOLD, Derbyshire - Over 3 acres, £29,000

Granvilles Wood - SOLD

Granvilles Wood is accessible by car along a good stone track, sound throughout the year, which leads to and forms all of the northern boundary of the wood. A second track turns south and forms the eastern boundary, this one is more of a fair weather track suitable for timber extraction in the drier months.

Close to the Peak District National Park, Granvilles Wood is level with good foot access beneath tall, straight-grown trees. The wood was replanted in the 1960s but it is also an ancient woodland site, with lots of signs of the original native woodland that has been documented as growing at this location as far back as the 1600s. The conifers are reaching maturity and could yield some wood suitable for timber based projects or firewood.

There are a few tall birch and oak trees growing amongst the pines, that make the woodland quite varied. Some coppiced oak and hazel form the under-storey, that together with younger birch, rowan and holly, provide winter food for woodland birds.

Pine needles cover the woodland floor and through this fragrant leaf litter, quite a few self-seeded holly bushes are emerging: ferns and bramble patches are providing low cover for small birds including wrens that dart in and out of the safety of this undergrowth. Standing dead wood reveals the tell-tale marks of feeding woodpeckers and the forest floor is scattered with the gnawed remains of many a pine cone, clearly rich pickings for squirrels.

The Peak District National Park was the first of the English National Parks, established in 1951 to protect its stunningly beautiful scenery for leisure and enjoyment. Laying at the southern tip of the Pennines, the name is derived from ‘peac’ meaning hill and the Park’s symbol is a millstone, made from gritstone that is over 300 million 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.
