Lydi Cop is a broadleaved wood set within an Ancient Woodland site. The trees were replanted approximately 20 years ago, have excellent form and are dense in number providing a great opportunity to harvest the poorer trees and produce some excellent firewood with minimal effort. You will find a mixture of oak and birch predominantly but the wood also hosts rowan, sweet chestnut and holly trees. The single canopy cover creates a charming place where the trees blend harmoniously with the environment.
Carpeted with short woodland grasses and frequent ferns, the woodland floor is almost free from entanglements and is delightful to stroll amongst the trees. In spring the ground is graced with bluebells and the abundance of fox gloves in summer provide a lovely display. Frequently seen in the wider woodland are muntjac and sika deer that feast on the chestnuts when in season.
Access is excellent to Lydi Cop, the well-constructed hard stoned track is suitable for a 2 wheel drive car at all times of the year. Entry is from a quiet council road, through a secure locked gate to the wood boundary. There is a hard stoned lay-by and an unsurfaced track that runs up the east boundary.
An overage clause on this property provides for 25% of the increase in the value of the land upon the granting of planning permission to be paid to a previous owner up until April 2020. After this the overage clause lapses.
If It Were Mine
I would thin out a good proportion of the birch leaving the oak to develop and grow further. I would also create a shelter for storing and drying the wood that could provide a useful retreat to enjoy the surroundings over lunch.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
