Located on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, Warrenby Wood lies on the west side of the pretty Brantingham Dale valley. A good variety of open meadows and wooded areas provide a broad range of habitats that encourage wildlife into the area.
Within sight of Dale Road, which passes along the south eastern boundary, are plenty of self-seeded, as well as some mature deciduous trees. Further into the wood lies a meadow of grasses and wildflowers, that has been gently reinstated by the previous owner. From here, there are far-reaching views, both across the wooded valley and down towards the Humber. Bordered by trees on all sides, the meadow is designated on the national habitat inventory as Lowland Grassland. It is a great place to spot butterflies as well as many different grassland plants.
A foot track passes across the top of the meadow and gives access to the wood, past a grove of birch trees that stand tall with white trunks in the winter. Towards the top of the dale there is a flat area with some hawthorn, sycamore, ash and birch. From this elevated position, more lovely views range across the Humber to Lincolnshire. Growing on the ground, plants typical of an established chalky woodland, include dog’s mercury, ferns and wild raspberry.
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.
Native broadleaved trees including birch, ash, sycamore and hawthorn.
The land is part of the Brantingham Dale Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Warrenby Wood would make a great conservation project and an ideal location to watch wildlife. A new owner may wish to manage the grassy clearings in line with the recommendations suggested by Natural England in their Views About Management.

Rights and covenants

The wood is ideal for conservation projects and the level terraces at the top of the Dale would lend themselves to occasional camping, with plenty of fuel for the campfire.
The Wolds Way long distance footpath is nearby, so is a good base for exploring the local area.
Local area and history
If travelling north to the wood, you pass through Brantingham village with the beautifully situated All Saints Church at its heart. Partly 13th century but mostly a Victorian restoration, the local squire had it expensively spruced up for a visit by the future Edward VII.
