Haden Copse lies within an Ancient Woodland site that sits amongst the rolling hills of rural Worcestershire. Excellent local roads make this woodland easily accessible by car and is within 15 minutes of Bromsgrove and Halesowen.
This deciduous wood is principally made up of young birch, oak and rowan, about 20 years old as well as a distinct area of mature trees, namely oak and beech in a graduated area formerly used for sand and gravel extraction. Amongst these trees you will also find holly, laurel and sweet chestnut.
The wood is on a gentle west facing slope and is heavily stocked with young trees. The south corner is distinctly different in character with bluebells carpeting the floor in spring beneath the mature trees. The woodland is rich throughout with flora, ferns and foxglove are especially prominent.
Haden Copse has great potential for leisure activities, such as camping and for observing nature. It is the perfect project for the amateur woodsman looking to provide firewood for the family home. The small size of some of the trees makes this wood easy to work and selecting the best oaks and chestnut to remain will enhance the woodland further.
Haden Copse benefits from a hard-surfaced track that runs from the public road to the woodland boundary and is suitable for a 2WD vehicle at all times of the year.
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 create a camping area in the mature section to enjoy with the kids, and I would thin some of the trees and create a glade to welcome the sun.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
