Baynham Wood - SOLD, Herefordshire - 4½ acres, £65,000

Baynham Wood - SOLD
Baynham Wood - SOLD
Herefordshire

A manageable acreage of stunning mature oak with excellent access midway between Ross-on-Wye and Ledbury.

A beautiful broadleaf woodland in a manageable size, Baynham Wood contains some magnificent mature oak amongst other mature standards.

Underfoot can be found the ancient woodland markers of wood sorrel, wood anemone as well as saxifrage and woodruff and in spring the owner will be doubly blessed with a fabulous display of bluebell (and we're not talking those horrible Spanish ones) rippling through the woodland from one end to the other.

A spring runs along its southern boundary shared with neighbouring Gwynn's wood, also demarcated by a storm ditch, and there is evidence of one or two small springs elsewhere throughout the woodland.

The ground slopes away gently to the east with intermittent views through trees to rolling Herefordshire fields. A great wood for camping or, with its excellent year round access and proximity to both Ross-on-Wye and Ledbury, as a setting for woodland education or woodland courses.

Trees

Predominantly oak, with wonderful mature specimens, whose origin can be traced back to the 1880's. There are good standards of other species present, some lovely beech, hornbeam, chestnut and ash all growing in good spacing, allowing free access throughout the woodland.

A small area of larch stands along the small spring running towards the stream in Baynham Wood's south western quarter.

Wildlife

A survey of the woodland carried out by the previous owners identified several interesting bird species including wood warblers, the lesser redpoll, spotted woodpeckers and marsh tits and found that conditions were suitable for the nesting of nightingales. There is evidence of deer in the vicinity and in the woodland itself, and with luck, or patience, you may see family groups of half a dozen or more deer passing through the wood.

Features

A small stream or spring runs along part of the southern boundary shared with Gwynn's wood, and other springs are present in the wood as well.

Access, tracks and footpaths

The access to Baynham Wood is very easy, directly off the A449 and along a short section of excellent all weather track.

A locked gate opens onto a further short section of track off which the hardstanding parking area can be found.

There are no public footpaths through the wood.

Rights and covenants

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.

Local area and history

The history of the larger woodland Coldborough Park, of which Baynham Wood is a part, can be traced back to the Domesday Book of 1086 AD and it was managed as coppice with standards for much of the medieval period. The area of the woodland now known as Baynham Wood is noted as still being coppiced woodland on a parish map of the 1830's, then owned by Lord Ashburton, which provides some interesting lineage and the oaks present there now are estimated to have been planted in the 1880's.
