Fairbourne Wood, Kent - Almost 7 acres, £79,000

Fairbourne Wood

Oak is evenly spaced throughout Fairbourne Wood, with these are brightly silvered birch, chestnut as both coppice and standard, greeny-grey barked young ash and friend of woodlands, the hazel.

There are small wilderness areas where trees from the '87 storm still lie on the ground, with some that continue to grow, being considered, by many,to be a conservation asset. The RSPB's flagship reserve at Minsmere has large areas of trees blown in '87, retained for their habitat value. One of the delights of woodlands are the changes emerging with each new season, butterflies up in the canopy in June/July following the widespread display of bluebells in spring merging with the fine colony of early purple orchid. It's worth a click on this link to read more about this orchid.

There is evidence of Iron Age activities with the Hill Fort further over to the east. No doubt residents of the fort would have foraged over this wood, perhaps wild food for them, fodder for their animals, wood for their fires and buildings? This area seems to be the boundary of two tribes, the Regneses and the Cantiaci. Perhaps they didn't get on so one of them needed a Hill Fort.

Access is from the old A21, now a private road and via a long forest track, an evocative and picturesque approach to the wood. A new owner will have keys to the gates enabling vehicles to access their wood.

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.
