Grims Dyke Wood, near Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire. 3.73 acres (approx.) of mature Beech woodland £29,500 freehold [#289].
A beautiful mature woodland in a very quiet and peaceful location yet close to Reading and the M4.
Grims Dyke Wood is predominantly made up of large mature canopy Beech trees, many of which are well over 150 years old. Typical to Beech woodland, the understorey and forest floor are relatively open, due to the heavy shade thrown by the canopy trees. However a good number of well spread out Holly bushes and some young regenerating Ash trees greatly add to the feel of the woodland.
There are areas with carpets of bluebell, but for the most part the ground layer has a patchy flora made up by species including wood melick, enchanter's nightshade, yellow archangel, bramble, wood sedge, remote sedge, dog violet, honeysuckle and woodruff.
The area is a wonderful wildlife haven with many diverse habitats. Red Kites are frequently seen and heard wheeling overhead and pigeons fly in all directions when you walk through the woodland in the late afternoon or evening. Deer are frequently seen in the woodland, Fallow, Roe and Muntjac, although not in sufficient numbers that are currently a problem to the forestry.
The short south west boundary (indicated by posts with green tops runs along the southern side of Grims Ditch, which is a prehistoric boundary bank. The soils are fine sandy loams with flint over chalk. They are free-draining and fertile.
