Plumtree Moor Plantation - SOLD, North Yorkshire - About 6⅓ acres, £65,000

Plumtree Moor Plantation - SOLD

Plumtree Moor Plantation is situated on fertile soils in fine landscape with farmland and woodland surrounding it. On the west side, part of the access route, is pasture land, where in summer a pedigree Red Poll suckler herd graze. The route is along a solid farm track across the side of the field and suitable for most cars, and is shared with Ladybank House.

The heart of the woodland is formed by rows of spruce, of around forty years old, a first thin was carried out and the trees are growing on well. These are interspersed with some self-set native hardwood trees such as elm, ash and willow.

On walking through the wood, access at ground level is easy and unhindered. As one draws closer to the edges, the range of tree types increases and there is a lot more growing at ground and shrub level with ferns bramble, patches of violets, honeysuckle and many grasses.

Seedlings of ash and sycamore are also colonising the woodland edges long with larger poles of straight growing oak and birch. A new owner may wish to encourage further diversity.

Birdlife is flourishing at the wood. Treecreepers are frequently spotted as well as the striking bullfinch with its distinctive call.

On arrival, please park on the grass verge on the roadside and walk down the track, opening and closing any gates. Please do be very careful not to allow the cattle to escape.

North Yorkshire, which is sheltered by the Pennines to the west, is a dry county with annual rainfall of about 24", and 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.

Although it is outside the stone walls of Kiplin Park the woodland was undoubtedly part of the original 4,000 acre estate which was split up and sold, mostly after WW1. The first Hall was built as a hunting lodge in the 1620s and no doubt the woodland was an important part of the hunting landscape. Kiplin Hall is now held in trust and on display in the Hall there is some interesting history - including papers relating to the formation of the state of Maryland in the US. In the woodland itself there is evidence of its use during the last war when Kiplin Hall was occupied by the RAF as a maintenance location, including the well-stoned hard tracks and the ‘bays’ used for concealed storage.

While viewing the woods it’s well-worth taking the time to visit the Hall, click here for info and opening times.

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.
