Situated a stone’s throw from the village of Great Missenden – once the home of the author Roald Dahl - Pankridge Wood forms part of a wider woodland in rural Buckinghamshire and is accessed through a locked gate and along a track.

Located over easterly sloping and undulating flinty and chalky soils, the mature canopy chiefly comprises beech, ash, oak, sycamore, birch with occasional cherry and rowan. Within its shrub layer beneath you will come across lush holly, hazel coppice and younger beech regeneration; beech seedlings and saplings are shade tolerant, a common species trait after early establishment. Come warmer months patches of colourful ground flora include bluebell, herb-robert, red campion, dog’s mercury and fern, all vital to our essential pollinators.

Towards the northeast boundary of the woodland are a number of steep slopes as well as some hollows, understood to be historical chalk pits. Some of these would make lovely areas for occasional camping, looking out over the countryside views beyond. Farmland views are also enjoyed from the western boundary.

A rich wildlife populous includes both fallow and roe deer, wood mouse, badger, fox and hare. A multitude of feathered visitors include buzzard, skylark, tree pipit, green woodpecker and many harmonious songsters.  

If It Were Mine

If cleared, some of the hollows would lend themselves perfectly to an overnight location looking out north across the vale. I would consider selecting a beech tree for a craft project as well yielding some beech wood chippings for my meat smoker at home. A good amount of fuel would also be gathered for winter.

Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
