Quarter Wood is a tranquil wood set within a quiet landscape and stocked with manageable trees. Serviced by a hard-surfaced track suitable for a two wheel drive car, access is hard to beat in a woodland such as this. The wood itself sits on a gentle slope facing to the north and has soft tracks that flank two sides.
The dominant tree species here are birch, oak and rowan of around twenty years old and are high in numbers.
Flora include a moss and grass covered floor with some very large ferns that give the wood a prehistoric feel. There are occasional foxgloves, glades of bluebell and the occasional rhododendron. On our visits to the wood we have frequently seen sika and muntjac deer, along with trails in the vegetation made by badgers.
Quarter wood provides a quiet and secluded retreat with great accessibility, within easy reach of Romsley and only a few minutes’ drive from Junction 4 of the M5. Whether it be a woodland project or a place to spend time on the weekend, this wood is definitely worth a look.
An overage clause on this property provides for 25% of the increase in the value of the land upon the granting of planning permission to be paid to a previous owner up until April 2020. After this the overage clause lapses.
If It Were Mine
I would mark all the nice oaks to keep, then regularly thin out the competing birch and rowan, allowing the remaining trees to improve their footing and fill the canopy. I would use the timber for firewood and possibly sell to the local market. I would also consider cutting a path through the wood and even create a shelter.
