Trimdon Wood - SOLD, County Durham - Almost 8 acres, £71,500

Trimdon Wood - SOLD
Trimdon Wood - SOLD
County Durham

A characterful, predominantly oak woodland, mixed with other native broadleaved trees, with venerable feature trees and clearings.

Trimdon Wood is a mixed native broadleaved woodland with a good age spread. Many old and characterful oak trees are growing: the oak being the corner stone supporting the wider ecology of a woodland. Some are straight and tall, while others are gnarled with fissured trunks and interesting burry growths. Among the oaks grow other species add amazing diversity too, such as ash, beech, hawthorn, alder and hazel.

All the tree species are regenerating well and self-sowing themselves, with a good density and population of young saplings ready to provide the next generation of the forest, as and when light and space allows. Patches of bramble and woodland ferns can be found here and there offering cover to wildlife, along with shrubby holly bushes.

An old hawthorn hedge grows on three sides of the wood and occasional wet areas hold water seasonally, and are a draw for wildlife.

Trees

Oak woodland with ash and beech. Alder, hazel, hawthorn and holly are also dotted through.

Wildlife

Birdlife abounds in Trimdon Wood with many woodland bird species frequenting the area such as blue tits, blackbirds, chiffchaffs and robins. There are great nesting sites to be found amongst the craggy veteran oak trees with plenty of holes and deep fissures, which are also ideal for bat roosts.

It is highly likely that frogs and newts are present as there is much suitable habitat to support them. Look out for frogspawn in the wet hollows.

Features

Gently undulating ground.

Feature trees.

Clearings and glades.

Access, tracks and footpaths

A track leads from the road to the wood, where there is space to park. Access on foot is easy throughout the wood.

A public footpath runs the length of the eastern boundary and a second one runs outside the boundary of the wood on the southern edge.

Rights and covenants

The sporting rights are included in the sale.

The standard covenant applies.

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

Trimdon Wood would be ideal for a conservation minded owner with an interest in wildlife. It’s a great place for birdwatching and the addition of bird and bat boxes could enhance its potential further.

The wetter areas could be made larger to create more of a wildlife pond.

Local area and history

Trimdon was first recorded in 1196 as Tremeldon, but there must have been an Anglo-Saxon settlement here as the name comes from the Old English 'treo-mael-dun' meaning 'hill with the wooden cross'. A church lies at the centre of the village on an earth mound.

In the 19th Century coal mining began to dominate the area. Though Trimdon Colliery closed in 1925 and Trimdon Grange Colliery in 1968, a proud mining heritage is still found in the local communities today.
