Paris Wood - SOLD, Kent - About 9 acres, £85,000

Paris Wood - SOLD
Paris Wood - SOLD
Kent

Full of wildlife, timber and firewood, Paris Wood is set in beautiful wooded landscape, isolated and off the beaten track.

Paris Wood lies on a south facing slope, mature chestnut on the upper levels and hazel coppice below, beech, yew and ash dominate the coppice. A truly beautiful woodland but also packed with wildlife; the colony of herb paris being the most notable exemplar. Although rather unremarkable its value is in its rarity. Observing the woodland throughout a year will show all the rare and beautiful woodland plants, many of which only appear in the spring and early summer.

Some of the beech trees are very old and nearing the end of their active lives and are now at a stage where they are providing homes for the many invertebrates and fungi feeding on decaying wood. In fact a huge beech fell recently and has been logged up ready for firewood. The main trunck now forms a major feature in the woodland.

Historically, trees have been pollarded to show boundary locations or cants, and these are in evidence here. They are shown as + on the wood plan.

Around Canterbury, much of the land is covered by very extensive areas of woodland. Looking in a south-west direction down from high on Chartham Downs, you can see spread out below the huge forest areas including Denge, Pennypot, Eggringe, Capel and several other smaller woodlands - in total some eight square kilometres of semi-natural ancient and PAWS woodland.

An assessment of the high conservation value of these woods is described in the SNCI citation, (a site of nature conservation interest), CLICK HERE, for full details. The quality of the landscape is described by the Kent Downs AONB (area of outstanding natural beauty) designation.

Garlinge village name derivation is obscure but may be Old English from Geon-ling (gren-hlinc), meaning green lynch, (green hill or green bank) evolving through Grenling, Grelinge or Gerlinge, Grellnch, Garlyng and Garlings to its present form.

Access to Paris Wood is over ½ mile along a private forest track, A-B on the plan, although a fair distance, it is a very pleasant woodland walk. There is a full right of way in perpetuity, from the public highway in Garlinge Green.

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.
