Pease Wood - SOLD, Cleveland - Nearly 4 ¾ acres, £39,000

Pease Wood - SOLD

Located close to Staithes and Saltburn on the North Yorkshire Coast and close to the North York Moors National Park, there is also a view of the sea from the boundary of Pease Wood.

The wood is a well balanced plantation of larch and pine on an ancient woodland site and a generous number of broadleaved trees have also self-seeded including much birch, rowan, as well as young oaks and beech trees. Some of the pines are quite large and spreading and offer great climbing opportunities. Larch is quite plentiful and is a very useful conifer being one of the most durable softwood timbers in the UK, commonly used for fencing and cladding.

In amongst the regeneration, honeysuckle grows in abundance, its twirling stems reaching up into the tree canopy and the fragrant flowers, a great source of nectar for pollinating insects.

A number of clearings can be found throughout the wood, some with a haze of purple heather and fresh green bracken. The added light levels afforded by the sunny clearings helps promote the diversity of the woodland floor and encourage wild flowers and invertebrates to the take up residence. Here and there rowan saplings are growing in dense thickets and holly and gorse bushes are dotted around adding to the diversity and evergreen cover that benefits resident wildlife. A deep ditch runs through the wood which holds water and the banks of this are flanked by large ferns.

Pease Wood is a quiet and tranquil spot where the visitor can listen to birdsong and the breeze wafting through the trees, an ideal place to come to and connect with nature.

Westfield House in Duncan Place is one of the largest private properties in the local town, Loftus. It was built in 1871 by the Pease family, after whom the wood takes its name, a prominent English and mostly Quaker family associated with Darlington and County Durham and descended from Joseph Pease of Darlington, elder son of Edward Pease (1711–1785). They were known as one of the great Quaker industrialist families of the nineteenth century, who played a leading role in philanthropic and humanitarian interests and were also heavily involved during the 19th century in woollen manufacturing, railways, coal mines, and politics.

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.
