Massey Wood - SOLD, Hampshire - About 5¼ acres, £75,000

Massey Wood - SOLD

Magnificent Douglas fir, Scots pine and some larch form a shelter for the maturing beech trees found throughout the wood. Ferns and bluebells spread across the woodland floor, deer - creatures of habit - find their way though the holly leaving their well-trod trails. It's located in a pretty farmed landscape at the top of a small valley just inside the South Downs National Park. Most of the wood is level with a slope at the north side down to Brightstone Lane, the track on the east side provides access to the whole wood from the metal field gate at the lane side.

Along the western boundary the old beech, cherry and hornbeam arch over into the woodland creating clear open areas below, perfect secluded spots for camping and relaxing.

The wood is private, there is a bridleway along the eastern boundary and a public footpath along the southside.

This part of Hampshire is Jane Austen country from where she took inspiration for her novels from the 'locals', the places and the landscape. The Domesday book refers to Farringdon as Feredone which, when translated, is a fern-covered hillside; ferns are seen through most of the wood and seem to thrive. The other 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 which probably looked very different in his day.

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.
