Target Wood - SOLD, East Sussex - 9 ½ acres, £85,000

Target Wood - SOLD

A lovely large pine wood, Target Wood is well-thinned with a high forest canopy and emerging broadleaf understory. The conifer in the wood is approx. 60% Corsican pine and 40% Scots pine. The broadleaf understory includes sweet chestnut, birch, young oak and holly. Along the north west boundary there are a line of majestic mature beech trees. Beyond the ride stop entrance a private track leads through the bracken to a sunny natural clearing. Here is a bespoke hand-made chestnut seat, a perfect secluded spot to enjoy the quiet of the wood.

Easily accessible from a quite country lane the wood is very well drained, sloping very gently to the south. The main entrance to the woods is through the locked single metal gate. A track provides access to the ride stop entrance. Here owners will be able to park their car inside Target Wood. The north west side of the wood is securely fenced along the entire length of the road.

RSPB Broadwater Nature Reserve is situated off the Broadwater Forest Lane to the south of Target Wood – and you are likely to hear and possibly see some of the following birds: Goldcrest, Siskin, Lesser Redpoll, Green Woodpecker and Marsh Tit. Summer migrants spotted in the reserve include: Blackcap, Whitethroat, Nightjar and Yellow Hammer, amongst others.

Up to the mid 1800’s Broadwater Forest, and the adjoining Warren were known as Waterdown Forest, which was once one of the four medieval hunting Forests of the High Weald Forest Ridge. Nearby is a National Monument known as ‘High Rocks’ where the large sandstone outcrops were once a prehistoric Iron Age fortified encampment, and where the local settlers would gather their families and livestock when raided by other marauding tribesmen. Rather more recently these outcrops have been used as training areas for some aspects of mountain rock climbing.

The centre of the delightful Spa town of Tunbridge Wells is only some 4 miles away, with the added attraction of the Spa Valley Railway running quite close to the woods.

The owner of Target Wood will have vehicle rights of way along the tracks on the map marked in 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.
