Chaff Wood - SOLD, Kent - Over 5½ acres, £45,000

Chaff Wood - SOLD

Capel Road, a no through road, leaves the pretty village of Petham heads north and enters sweet chestnut coppice woodland. Almost at the far end is the bridleway which connects with Pennypot Lane and Anvil Green to the south. Chaff Wood is accessed off this bridleway, through a ride-stop where a short track leads to an opening under a large oak tree. The bridleway, previously a council maintained road, is solid.

Oak, and silver birch with sweet chestnut as both standard and coppice, shade large areas of bluebells. Considered to be semi-natural ancient woodland, although dominated by chestnut, is of high conservation quality and designated as an Site Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI), the map and description can be viewed by clicking HERE. This covers a wide area of woodland including Capel and Mounts Wood. In spring this area is favoured by nightingales and their loud song can often be heard in season. This part of Kent has a beauty recongnised by its inclusion in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Ancient tribes, later displaced by the Romans, would have occupied these lands, the only remnants surviving are their Barrows, click here for details and see the location just to the south of Chaff Wood.
