Laylands Wood - SOLD, North Yorkshire - Over 4 ¾ acres, £59,000

Laylands Wood - SOLD

Situated amongst attractive woodland and farm fields, Laylands Wood is planted with a mix of conifers such as pine, larch and spruce, of approximately 40 years old and growing straight and tall. Dotted amongst these are a good many deciduous trees too, such as oak and sycamore. Sycamore can also be found growing from coppice stools while oak saplings, that have seeded and regenerated themselves, are colonising areas where they find essential sunlight.

A hedgerow of mixed native plants extends around the boundary to the road, to the east and south, providing a thick privacy screen between the lane and the wood, with hawthorn, blackthorn, elder and more. The hedge is great for wildlife as are the patches of bramble strung along the edge: in dappled sunshine their flowers are covered in bees and butterflies buzzing and flitting in search of food.

Further into the woodland, in the south eastern corner, quite a number of hazel stools populate the understorey with some birch mixed in and adding further diversity.

Conveniently, it is relatively easy to get around in the wood; with a shallow incline up to a ridge and then back down again, ground cover is made up of ferns, wood sorrel and dogs mercury.

The wood takes its name Laylands, from a farm just to the west, part of the Kiplin Hall Estate until 1919. The final owner of Kiplin Hall was Bridget Talbot, a multi-talented women who supported soldiers on the Italian Front during World War One and invented a waterproof torch for life-jackets which undoubtedly saved many lives. Bridget set up a charitable trust to save Kiplin Hall for the nation.

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.
