SOLD: Stocks Wood £45,000 Freehold


With its own access directly off a minor road this wood has many advantages. Really good mature specimens of English oak are spread throughout and below these are hazel coppice, a perfect combination for wildlife. It's level, easily walked through and has a good dense roadside boundary for privacy. Bluebells abound in spring.

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.


There are two designations: i) the wood is covered by a tree preservation order as are most of the woods in the environs, they are all ancient woods and ii) it is part of the Bilsington Woods and Pasture Local Wildlife Site. Both designations recognise the high conservation value of these woods. Normal forestry management is not affected where a Forestry Commission agreed management plan is in place.

Ham Street NNR is just across the fields and much of the wildlife in Stocks Wood is found there. Natural England has produced a very useful education pack which could be used with children in Stocks Wood, CLICK here to view or download.

Access, tracks and footpaths

The wood is private although there ia a public footpath outside the western boundary but this does not impinge on Stocks Wood. Access is directly off the quiet Capel Road and there is good road frontage.
