Woodlands For Sale Northern England
Fowlers Hill Wood, Garstang, Lancashire. 6.1 acres (approx.) of established mixed woodland in an edge-of-village location combining amenity with commercial potential, freehold for £45,000 [#346].
A well-established mixed conifer and broadleaf woodland on a level site with road frontage, good access and a small pond.
Despite its name Fowlers Hill Wood occupies a level lowland site. It sits adjacent to the A6 in an edge-of-village location with open views over surrounding farmland. The crop is dominated by a mosaic of Scots pine, silver birch and sycamore with occasional ash, elder and beech. The eastern fringe also supports some notable poplar stems of considerable size. The forest floor is level and clean offering easy access on foot to all areas.
The road frontage and dry level site offer the prospect of easy management and harvesting. The wood is in production phase and future thinning cycles could produce both commercial volumes of pine and valuable firewood for this burgeoning market.
As well as timber income, the wood offers immediate amenity value. Moving west across the clean woodland floor, traffic noise is muffled by the intervening trees and the west side of the wood presents a quiet rural aspect enhanced by an attractive clean-water pond in the northwest corner. The selective felling of a few stems by the pond would further enhance a peaceful recreation area of high amenity.
The woodland is subject to a 50% claw-back of uplift value resulting from any change of use and a restrictive covenant by the Duchy of Lancaster.
The entire wood is the subject of a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). A TPO does not prevent felling or other woodland management but does require the appropriate consent from the Local Planning Authority.
