Anker Wood is a predominantly broadleaved woodland set in quiet rural Worcestershire looking out to the Malvern Hills. This typical English woodland once carried a conifer crop which was felled some 40 years ago and is now restored to its former Ancient Woodland status but with remnants to its recent history, redwood, Norway spruce and scots pine are a nice token to diversity.
Within the woodland you will notice an impressive number of hardwood trees, namely oak, ash, beech, hornbeam and sycamore, a welcome sight to an enthusiastic woodsman. Adding a splash of green in winter you will also find a few aforementioned conifer trees.
At ground level you will find grasses, ferns, bramble and rose, wood anemones, celandine and vines. You will notice a developing understory, in places very dense with regenerating trees and small trees such as hawthorn, hazel, privet and holly.
Anker Wood sits in quiet agricultural countryside and forms part of a larger woodland. It has road frontage and excellent hard standing access suitable for a two wheeled drive car with ample turning and parking.
A wildlife track leads deeper into the wood and allows you to appreciate this glorious woodland at close hand. There is small clearing made for a camp accessed by a discreet route through the trees. Also provided is a small garden shed suitable for storing tools for the would-be forester.
If It Were Mine
Anker wood needs little work but I would implement a plan to remove just a few trees that prove over competitive for the nicer tree specimens. I would maintain a clear path into the wood to make use of the camping area and just enjoy.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
