Woodlands For Sale South East England
North Brock Wood, Wolverton, near Newbury, Hampshire. 7.12 acres (approx.) of mixed woodland £42,000 freehold [#355].
A mixed woodland with excellent access over a hard track. Mature Pine and some areas of large mature broadleaves. Very peaceful location, yet easy access to the A339 and Newbury.
North Brock Wood consists of mainly mature Scots Pine mixed with Birch. However, there are significant groups of large mature Oak, Ash, Beech and Sycamore in the north east and east of the woodland.
The mixture of species and species groups makes for a very interesting woodland diversity and is a positive delight to walk through. Future management could favour any of the species and could embrace several management systems.
The land is flat and with occasional drainage ditches. The soils are freely draining and the ditches are dry in all but the wettest of weather. Access is excellent over a hard forest road that leads up to and along the north western boundary. This road is suitable for cars at all times of the year.
The location is very sheltered and quiet, being surrounded by other woodland on most boundaries. It is on the edge of the village of Wolverton which is a very quiet little village about 8 miles from Newbury.
The whole forest (of which North Brock Wood is a part) is designated as Ancient Woodland as there is evidence of continuous tree cover since around the year 1600.
Soils are deep fine loams over Jurassic loam and clay. The fertility of the soil is well proven by the growth rates of the trees.
There are some restrictive covenants to protect the woodland and the environment. Please click on the button below to view these.
From Newbury, head south east on the A339.
After you leave the residential area of Newbury drive for about 7½ miles. Then turn left onto the minor road called Crabbs Hill, signed for Wolverton Common and Axmansford.
If you miss this turn, don’t take the next one which is signed for Wolverton. Turn around and go back to Crabbs Hill.
After 0.3 miles turn left into Church Lane (opposite the church).
Drive down this lane until the tarmac runs out and then another ¼ mile until you come into the woodland. Keep right when the road splits and park in front of the locked gate with our sign on it. This is point A on the plan below.
PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN FRONT OF THE GATE OR BLOCK ACCESS IN ANY WAY.
You will have to walk from here as we keep the gate locked for security reasons.
Climb the gate and walk down the forest road for about 450 metres (past a turning to your right) until you get to a ‘T’ junction in the forest road (point B). Turn right here.
Continue for another 400 metres until you come to a left turn in the road and a tree in front of you with orange paint marks (point C). Turn left here.
Continue up this road for 140 metres until you find a wooden post with red and blue painted top (point D). North Brock Wood is now in front of you on your right.
