Havier Wood - SOLD, North Yorkshire - About 4½ acres, £45,000

Havier Wood - SOLD

Large, tall spruce set the character of this woodland, which is green year-round but with co-planted beech and oak. In the autumn these have golden leaves which are replaced by bright greens in the spring. Level and easily walked through, the tall straight beech are a forester's delight. There's plenty of space to set up wood working facilities and also for camping. Access is suitable for ordinary cars. Traditionally, hardwoods are planted alongside conifers, which draw up the hardwoods producing trees of good 'form'. Now, some gradual halo thinning to open up the canopy would benefit both the beech and oaks. Plenty here for the "family forester" to do.

The small pond, probably a wartime relic, is full of compost and and could easily be dug out and extended.

The Region

North Yorkshire sheltered, by the Pennines to the west, is a dry county with annual rainfall of about 24", Kiplin lies in the shallow valley of the River Swale between the market towns of Richmond and Northallerton, towns which have everything a woodland owner could want.


During the last war, Kiplin Hall was used by the RAF as the maintenance unit for the local airfields at Scorton, Catterrick and Leeming. Many woods during the war were used for concealed storage as was the case at Kiplin, and the geometric layout of the rides and drainage ditches are a testament to this. The tracks have solid stone bases and within the woods are concrete 'pads' on which RAF equipment would have stood. They are still there although covered in accumulated soil and leaves. When cleared they make good hard standings for the present use.

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.

  • Price: £45,000 Freehold
  • Location: Kiplin, Between Richmond and Northallerton, North Yorkshire
  • Size: About 4½ acres for sale


These are shown by mauve markings on trees and two posts. To the north the marked trees in a line are included, to the east it's the edge of the stream, to the west and south it's the track edges.
