Nodding Bank sits in an elevated position with outstanding views looking onto the Long Mynd and across the valley from the Stiperstones. It is a semi-natural ancient wood made up with oak, alder, ash, hazel and birch trees. A good proportion of this wood was cleared of trees a long time ago and the open space thus created provides a stunning vista to the east. The open areas are now covered in bracken but in the wooded sections you will find Hard fern, dog-rose, honeysuckle, sedge and even some patches of bluebells to name but a few of the seasonal woodland blooms here.

In the top corner is a stunning grassy area shaded by mature trees with a seasonal stream that runs along the northern boundary. There is also a slight track that runs down the bank to the lower part of this wood which has a dense and overgrown feel to it providing a hideaway for wildlife.

Vehicular access to this plot is excellent and suitable for a 2 wheel drive car. At the end of the track is a useful parking and turning area.

If It Were Mine

I would consider building a tree house in the top corner of the wood or a shelter I could use to take advantage of the views. I would also consider controlling the bracken to allow for some planting of trees on the bank whilst being mindful not to obstruct the views.
