Brightstone Wood - SOLD, Hampshire - Over 3½ acres, £55,000

Brightstone Wood - SOLD
Brightstone Wood - SOLD
Hampshire

Beech with Scots and Corsican pine set in pretty Hampshire farmland well-know as Jane Austen and Gilbert White countryside.

Brightstone Wood, a woodland of Scots and Corsican pine planted to shelter and nurse the beech trees now at a semi-mature stage, sits on the upper parts of a homely and shallow valley.

This and the surrounding woodland is classified as ancient replanted woodland, wood sorrel grows here, their leaves folding at night and reopening during the day as do their flowers. In Europe wood sorrel is known as Alleluia because of its Easter flowering period. Windflower - wood anemone - grows in places, on bright days they follow the sun from east to west.

The wood is private, the track along the western boundary is also a bridleway. Deer - creatures of habit - follow their well-trod trails, in places their resting areas can be seen.The wood is located in a pretty farmed landscape at the top of a small valley just inside the South Downs National Park. Much of the wood is level, it then follows the slope down to Brightstone Lane. The track on the west side provides access to the whole wood from the metal field gate at the lane side.

The Domesday book refers to Farringdon as Feredone which, when translated, is a fern-covered hillside. The most notable local, Gilbert White, was one of the first to really study ecology and his calendar from 1795 is a valuable reference point. He may well have focused his attention on the woodlands here.

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.
