Hunloke Wood - SOLD, Derbyshire - Nearly 4 ½ acres, £39,000

Hunloke Wood - SOLD
Hunloke Wood - SOLD
Derbyshire

A pine and larch wood, mixed with broadleaves on an ancient woodland site, great for bird and wildlife in general.

Hunloke Wood is planted with Corsican and Scots pine as well as larch; all around 50 years old and growing straight and tall. Also in evidence are pockets of the old wood, particularly following the course of the stream that runs along the eastern boundary. Here coppiced stools of hazel grow beneath a few larger oak trees and more oaks are found amongst the conifers too.

Like most conifer plantings, they were planted as a crop and could provide some useful firewood or timber for other projects if the new owner decided to thin, while prioritising the hardwood species. Self-seeded broadleaved trees are springing up from the forest floor, taking advantage of the sunlight filtering through the higher trees and this regeneration would be easily enhanced with the creation of some sunny glades.

Plenty of woodland birds reside in Hunloke Wood and in the Spring there’s a crescendo of birdsong, especially at dawn and dusk. Woodpeckers love to feed on standing deadwood along with the tree creepers and nuthatches that ascend the tree-trunks looking for insects. You’re quite likely to see flocks of tits flitting through the high canopy too. Amongst the shrub layer, blackbirds, wrens and robins are quite common, nesting amongst the honeysuckle and thickets.

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.

Trees

Holly grows throughout the wood and along with some patches of rhododendron and yew trees, the evergreen shrubs provide some valuable cover for resident birdlife.

Features

Bluebells offer a vivid splash of colour in the spring, growing alongside ferns and honeysuckle. The stream on the eastern boundary runs seasonally and is a good draw for wildlife

Access, tracks and footpaths

The wood is reached via a good stone track that runs from Matlock Road. It is quite accessible once you’re within the wood too, with easy routes across gently sloping ground.

Rights and covenants

Shooting rights are included.

A public footpath passes the western boundary just outside Hunloke Wood.

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.

Activities

The wood could be enjoyed just as it is, it’s a lovely place to spend time in, observing the plants and wildlife. A more active woodland owner may enjoy the opportunities to encourage more native hardwood trees by creating light planting areas and glades.

Local area and history

The gardens of, the once nearby, Wingerworth Hall were designed by Humphry Repton. Wingerworth Hall, demolished 1927, was the ancestral home of the Hunloke family in the village of Wingerworth, from which the wood takes its name.

The house was in the rare style of understated Baroque, peculiar to England. This style of architecture was typical of the late English Baroque, and can be seen in a less sophisticated form at Sherborne House in Dorset and in its full fruition at Chatsworth
