Situated a short distance from the attractive village of Nettlebed in rural Oxfordshire, Turnville Wood is part of a larger area known as Groveridge Wood. It is accessed through a locked gate and along a track.

Located on eastern facing slopes with chalky and flint soils, the lofty canopy consists primarily of beech along with oak standards, cherry, birch and occasional larch. It is understood that beech woodlands - and perhaps this wood too - were planted in this region to service the thriving furniture industry during the 19th century. Within the shrub layer below you will find holly, hazel coppice, hawthorn and regeneration of beech; the saplings grow well under canopy cover. A new custodian may decide to manage this going forward, perhaps favouring the more promising stems for future timber production. Identified by some of the colourful ground dwellers come spring and summer, Ancient Woodland indicators include bluebell, wood anemone, dog’s mercury as well as foxglove, primrose and honeysuckle.

The groves of holly offer some seclusion ideal for a number of uses - pitching a tent, bushcraft or the onsite milling of logs for a domestic fuel supply. There are some lovely countryside vistas to be enjoyed, I would find a suitable place to sit in the evenings with a glass or two.  

Turnville Wood plays host to owl, buzzard, swift, green woodpecker and a multitude of harmonious songsters. Deer (muntjac, fallow and roe), badger, hare, fox and wood mouse make up the mammal inhabitants.

If It Were Mine

A mobile sawmill trailer could be accommodated for a day or two for fuel production and perhaps a small amount of useful timber. I would clear a secluded camping spot amongst the holly groves for some camping and honing my bushcraft skills.  I would certainly mount a few trail cameras to trees to observe the wildlife activity.

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