Coopers Wood is a sunny broadleaf woodland in the heart of the South Downs National Park. The village of Northchapel, a historical centre for traditional glass and brick making that once relied heavily on woodlands, is half a mile to the south. The charming market town of Haslemere, its name derived from the hazel trees by the lake (mere), is some 10 minutes by car.
The mixed nature of the woodland in terms of tree species and ages adds to its highly attractive character. A good hard track flanks the northwest boundary, useable by 2WD vehicle year-round. This recently upgraded sandstone track is useful should a new owner wish to extract firewood for the hearth and for general management of the wood.
To the south of the wood are young well-established oak and mixed broadleaf in tree shelters, probably planted around 15 years ago. Thickets of birch have also naturally regenerated in this area, surrounded by a pleasant copse of ash and oak. The remainder of the woodland is a lovely continuous copse of mature oak, ash, beech and mixed broadleaf.
This copse area has an archetypal Ancient Woodland composition with a rich diversity of native flora, tree, fungi, insect and bird species. Tall oaks extend high into the canopy over hazel. In spring, there are carpets of bluebells and wood anemone. Chiffchaff and other song birds call out and animal tracks, such as badgers and deer can be seen in places.
If It Were Mine
I would respace some of the naturally regenerated birch and carefully prune the oak as they establish into maturity. Coopers Wood is a wonderful woodland, perfect for a family camping trip or wildlife spotting adventures.
