Jacksons Plantation is a splendid mature broadleaved woodland with a high canopy dominated by magnificent sycamore, oak and beech trees. Set amongst green pasture this private woodland has great offerings. Access is directly off the main council road on a track that runs the length of the wood.
The high crown of these well-spaced trees provides an open and airy feel with few encumberments. In places there is an emerging understory of developing sycamore, hazel, thorn and elder.
Throughout the wood undulations in the floor give a sense of space and appeal with the potential to create a pond to attract wildfowl.
The wood has a stone wall perimeter encompassing the trees on this fertile and dry land. There are lovely open views across fields to the north, east and west towards the delightful village of Peak Forest.
Jacksons Plantation is a very private wood in a rural setting and is ideally located with superb road frontage access. It offers the perfect retreat for those seeking outdoor activity whether it be a stroll round the wood, conservation work, crafts or useful management producing a sustainable source of firewood.
If It Were Mine
I would thin out some of the poorer trees and replant with a view to them one day replacing some of the mature trees. A woodland shelter would be useful and provide somewhere to have a cuppa and enjoy the superb surroundings.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
