Coria Wood - SOLD
Coria Wood - SOLD
Northumberland

An attractive and open, mixed conifer woodland located within easy reach of Carlisle or Newcastle

Coria Wood lies within a much larger woodland which has been in existence for a considerable number of years. Originally a birch wood the land is now mainly given over to Norway and Sitka spruce. A small fringe of Scots pine adds variety and character to the wood. Some traces of the original wood remain with the occasional self-seeded birch a hark back to times long gone. A venerable cherry sits on the boundary presiding over pleasant views across the surrounding farmland.

Any visit to the wood is shared by the native inhabitants. A variety of birds make the canopy their home with resident roe deer a not infrequent sight. An overnight camping stay is an attractive proposition facilitating wildlife watching at the prime times of dusk and dawn. The soft cushion of years of pine needles making a comfortable base for a sleeping mat.

The large amount of growing timber could easily be sustainably harvested as a domestic wood fuel source which would have the added benefit of encouraging a greater diversity of trees and smaller plants to flourish in the space created.

The local area has a strong Roman heritage, Coria being the name of one of their many forts, this one located nearby the attractive market town of Corbridge.

The woods at Dilston were formerly part of the estate of the Radcliffes of nearby Dilston Hall. Now serving as a much more useful Mencap further education college the hall was built to rival nearby 18th century mansions but was never completed. At the outbreak of the Jacobite Rebellion, work was suspended, never to be resumed. All that remains are the ruins of Dilston Castle, situated on the banks of the Devils water, a lively tributary of the River Tyne.

Access: Is through a wooden field gate off the B6307 then along a short track to a hard standing and turning area in the wood.

Sporting rights: These are owned and included in the sale.

Surrounding Area: Coria Wood is part of an extensive area of woodland which runs down to the River Tyne. The Tyne is considered to be England's best salmon river which together with sea trout runs gives opportunity for excellent fishing. This is a quiet rural setting with many public footpaths with good walking. Nearby is Hadrian's Wall with the more challenging Hadrian's Wall Long Distance Path.

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 is a growing interest in hut, bothy and temporary shelter building, especially in Scotland; for those interested in erecting a hut or shelter, here is some interesting and very helpful guidance from Reforesting Scotland’s Thousand Hut Campaign. Your Local Planning Authority should also be consulted.
