Ramble Low lies to the south of a larger forested area looking out over farmland and the North Shropshire Plain. Located near the town of Telford and close to the attractive village of Little Wenlock, this wood has good access links.
This wood has a range of hardwood species including oak, chestnut, ash, sycamore and occasional birch. There is also a plantation of exceptional alder near to the stream.
There are two distinct habitats of woodland, the lower level is a stand of well growing alder with some ash peppered throughout, these are nice drawn out stems making them ideal for firewood. The upper section is a Semi Natural Ancient Woodland with a very naturalised feel. There are some large stems of sweet chestnut and oak providing wonderful character; the understorey is dense in places with holly, hazel and hawthorn. Beneath this are patches of seasonal bluebells amongst the herb layer. The woodland floor is generally clean with soft grasses, ferns and woodland associates such as sorrel. Underfoot the undulating ground is evidence of an historical past with old tracks and diggings.
Management and harvesting of these trees will both be aided by the excellent forest tracks that have been recently re-surfaced providing all year-round access suitable for a car.
Ramble Low invites instant occupation and enjoyment thanks to its excellent access, interesting terrain and attractive stands of hardwoods, whilst those of a more active persuasion will find plenty of silvicultural opportunity in the diverse structures of the wood.
If It Were Mine
I would make a path to a nice spot in the wood where I could enjoy the surroundings. The wood could benefit from a light thinning, taking advantage of the current Forestry Commission felling licence.
