Edge Wood combines an established mixed broadleaved wood with a small wildflower meadow recently planted with groups of young trees. The wood is divided by a track into two distinct areas, with mature broadleaved trees in an elevated position above, and younger woodland descending to a flat open area below. From the higher ground the plot provides extensive views over the Peak District towards Bakewell, and from the very top of the wood there are fabulous views over to Curbar Edge and Baslow Edge.
The woodland is easily accessed from the main road through a locked steel gate, and is serviced by a hard surfaced track and parking area. Access to the elevated area is along the grassy track to the top of the slope (this track also provides access for the neighbouring farmer to the fields beyond).
The woodland is a fantastic mixture of large ash, sycamore, cherry, occasional oak, rowan, young elms, crab apple, goat willow, blackthorn and plenty of hawthorn, some of which have been cut back to open up the canopy and increase the diversity of ground cover. This area is hugely rich in conservation value and is a fabulous habitat for wildlife, especially woodland song birds.
The open wildflower meadow below the track includes recently planted groups of hazel and willow. It also has a number of young fruit trees including cherry, apple, pear, damson and some raspberry bushes. In the summer it is awash with wildflowers including lesser celandine, speedwell, forget-me-knot, meadow cranesbill, tufted vetch, common vetch, primrose, bluebell and ox eye daisy. At the bottom of the meadow there is a structurally sound timber shed (8’ x 16’) which is a useful storage facility and provides a handy base for the day’s activities.
Edge Wood is a beautiful plot that is perfect for the enjoyment of the whole family, inspiring both children and adults alike to get involved in nature and take a break from the stresses and strains of everyday life. The wood can also be managed to provide fuel for the family hearth and is the perfect setting for the recreational woodsman.
This woodland is subject to a 25% claw-back of uplift value resulting from the grant of planning permission for development.
