Rose Corner is situated in rural Oxfordshire, a stone’s throw south of the village of Woodcote and forms the northern point of a wider gated area known as Birchen Copse.

The woodland sits among largely level fertile flint and loamy clay soils and presents a mature canopy of majestic beech as well as the occasional oak, ash, birch and cherry. In the shrub layer below you will find prolific holly, laurel and a yew tree or two. The holly groves offer a sense of privacy for occasional camping.

The whole area was historically managed for its good beech timber to service a once successful furniture industry in nearby High Wycombe. Come spring and summer, the ground layer becomes coloured with Ancient Woodland indicators such as bluebell, primrose and wood anemones. Patches of lush green brachythecium moss offer an interesting layer to the woodland floor.

Arresting rural views are enjoyed from the northeastern boundary, perhaps making a nice location to sit on a bench on a warm evening with a glass. Regular woodland frequenters include both roe and muntjac deer, badger, common dormouse, the long-eared owl, buzzards and many mellifluous songsters.

Rose Corner gives vast scope for woodland recreation and bushcraft, with the added benefit of some domestic firewood if required. Access is a stone track via a locked gate.

If It Were Mine

There are a number of suitable areas here to accommodate a trailered sawmill; selecting a stem for any one of a multitude of uses would certainly be on the list. Story telling with the family round a responsible campfire would be a welcome distraction from electronic devices. I would think about putting in a vehicular gate at the access into Rose Corner and continuing the fencing along the southwestern boundary.

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