Waltons Wood lies within an Ancient Woodland that sits amongst the rolling hills of rural Worcestershire. Excellent local roads make this woodland easily accessible by car and is within 15 minutes of Bromsgrove and Halesowen.
This deciduous wood is principally made up of mature chestnut and oak. Along the west flank is a group of mature larch. Planted amongst these mature trees is a mixed selection of broadleaves about 20 years old. These are namely chestnut, oak, beech, rowan and birch. There is also naturally occurring holly.
The wood is level and well stocked with trees resulting in an unencumbered woodland floor free of most vegetation providing easy walking amongst the trees.
In the spring the floor is awash with bluebells carpeting the floor beneath the mature trees as well as the occasional fern and foxglove.
Waltons Wood has great potential for leisure activities, such as camping and for observing nature. It is the perfect project for the amateur woodsman looking to provide firewood for the family home. The small size of some of the trees makes this wood easy to work and selecting the best oaks and chestnut to remain will enhance the woodland further.
The wood benefits from a hard-surfaced track that runs from the public road to the woodland boundary and is suitable for a 2WD vehicle at all times of the year.
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
Waltons Wood has quite a high density of trees and would welcome a thinning if a new owner so desired. I would favour the trees with the best form and open the area around them to encourage them to reach the upper canopy.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
