Tyndale Wood nestles in the quiet countryside to the south of the historic towns of Corbridge and Hexham. The woodland is light and airy as a result of the long open field boundaries and the predominantly tall larch that allow light to filter down to the forest floor. Lovely views are on offer from the woodland to the northern valley in which sits Dilston House.
The 15th-century owner of this house, William Tyndale, wrote the first English translation of the Bible directly from the Greek and Hebrew text (to the fury of the Catholic Church), paving the way for the King James version. Interestingly a previous family in the house were the Devilstones, shortened to D'ilston: fortunately there is no Devilstone Bible.
The woodland has good access across firm stoney forest tracks that arrive at a hardened vehicle turning area. The track continues to a larger stacking area for timber awaiting collection while seasoning. This area could easily be levelled further to provide a generous camping spot.
The woodland could easily provide a sustainable source of domestic firewood bringing the added benefit of increased light levels to the woodland floor. A pretty little stream called Birchy Sike babbles away beside this area and runs inside the western edge of the woodland. This is a great place to sit, rest and contemplate the woodland: a rustic bench with views into the surrounding woodland conveniently facilitates this..
Access through Tyndale Wood is easy with a pretty and convenient trail running from the rear of the stacking area, up and along the spine of the woodland. As you walk along this path you will notice the many different species that have been encouraged to make the woodland their home due greatly to the large amount of light that is available. These include birch, beech, hawthorn, rowan, sycamore, holly and of course the many straight larch trees. Mushrooms, gorse, brambles and ivy all grow here naturally and help enhance the woodland for the many species of birds (including adorable robins and wrens) and insects who call it home.
Tyndale Wood is a delightful woodland with many options for a woodland owner, be it sitting and observing nature (including the roe deer that wander through the woods and the field to the north) or taking a more active management role. Selectively thinning of the larch would provide a very useful source of firewood and encourage the growth of the native broadleaf trees; planting of mixed hedging species would also encourage more birdlife.
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.
The boundary of Tyndale Wood is clearly marked on all sides with blue paint on fence posts.
