Cinder Wood is a superb chestnut woodland set within a wider forest located in tranquil Shropshire countryside. This mature broadleaf wood is ideally located some three miles south of the M54 and a short distance from Shrewsbury.
The land forms part of an Ancient Semi-Natural Woodland and has seen very little disturbance for many years. Comprised of mature oak and chestnut there are also areas of good sized birch and rowan, perfect for firewood. The oak trees are a decent size, tall and straight, a lot of the chestnut were once coppiced and now form mature stools. To the southeast there is a clump of mature holly providing significant seclusion from the outside and cover for the deer population.
The ground is flat but has a few depressions, possibly man-made where “minerals” were once sought. The floor is seasonally abundant with bluebells, ferns and foxglove and has a small number of young trees.
Access to the wood is suitable for a car at all times of the year by a recently stoned track that meanders through the trees. The wood is private and is accessible via the track through locked gates, with a layby for turning, parking or stacking timber.
Cinder Wood is a peaceful and secluded setting with bags of character. Looking out from the boundary you can see green fields, distant Staffordshire hills and chimney tops of houses in the foreground.
If It Were Mine
The trees would welcome thinning, opening up some of the birch and bringing light onto the woodland floor to encourage regeneration. There is a Forestry Commission thinning licence in place allowing around 1 in 4 or 5 trees to be harvested. I would seek to make a few clearings, put up some deer fencing and see what trees emerge from the soil.
I would use the timber produced as firewood for the hearth and the odd camp fire for a night under the stars.
