Woodlands For Sale Northern England
Judson Copse, Coalburns, Tyne and Wear. 3.2 acres (approx.) of well-established young conifers and hardwoods offering privacy and accessibility, freehold for £16,000 [#360].
An attractively located and well-established stand of ten-year-old mixed conifers and riparian broadleaves on the edge of a larger wood at the source of a small stream, some 14 miles west of Newcastle.
Judson Copse is a well-established 10-year-old restock woodland dominated by Sitka spruce, Corsican pine and European larch. It is diversified with planted native hardwoods such as birch, alder and willow by the streamside plus areas of self-seeded hardwoods and shrubs including birch, rowan, ash and holly. The young trees, which are growing strongly on fertile soils, are densely stocked and there is now the chance to manipulate the species composition of this evolving wood through selective re-spacing.
The wood lies on level ground near the source of a small stream on the western fringes of a designated ancient woodland. It is surrounded on three sides by a variety of woodland types from newly planted hardwoods, through mid-rotation conifers to mature mixed woodland. To the west there are open views over Northumbrian fields.
Lying at the edge of a larger diverse woodland, Judson Copse harbours many woodland species including fox, roe deer and badger whilst the sound of curlew and lapwing are frequently heard on adjacent grazing land. Buzzards and red kites are often seen overhead.
The wood is in a secluded valley away from public roads, but easy access is facilitated by a newly resurfaced hard forest track suitable for cars. The track adjacent to the east side of the wood belongs to Judson Copse. Please note the track has been upgraded since these photographs were taken.
Over the next 5 to 10 years the canopy of this evolving stand of trees will lift to become an established wood. Being in the formative stages of its development Judson Copse offers a real chance to acquire a wood in an attractive and private setting for a modest outlay.
Note: This area was historically mined. There are no known mine entries within the wood.

A pack of legal information (including up-to-date searches) has been prepared by the vendor's solicitor. This can be made available to the purchaser at a cost of £100 + VAT (representing a considerable saving).

|How to Buy this Woodland:||
Once you have decided that you want to buy a woodland, you need to confirm this with us as soon as possible. Our policy is not to negotiate on price. The advertised price is the sales price. However, once you have written to us confirming that you want to buy a woodland, we will take the woodland off the market and we will not accept any other offer.
Plans, areas and particulars are for reference only. They have been carefully checked by us but we cannot guarantee their accuracy and they do not form a part of any contract. Prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves, and we will give as much help as possible with all information we have available.
