Spindle Wood is a beautiful example of a 50 year old oak plantation which is thought to be on an ancient woodland site in the idyllic Herefordshire countryside, a region associated with apple growing and cider making. The woodland stands on a slightly sloping, westerly aspect with primarily fertile, deep brown earth soils. The recently constructed track allows year-round access in a two wheel drive car.
Among the oak you will find a smattering of ash trees competing for sunlight in the upper canopy with the odd mature cherry tree on the field edges, that likely pre-date the oaks. Under the canopy you will find hazel growing well. A recent thinning has revealed a sparse woodland floor but now that the sunlight is reaching these parts a multitude of plants and trees should begin to shoot up and fill the space.
The remaining woodland floor has a myriad of plants as you would expect - ivy and bramble are present throughout and if you keep your eyes peeled you might also stumble upon Great Mullein (or Beggar’s blanket).
The woodland is alive with the sounds of animals and birds, even in winter! Rabbits, hares and grey squirrels are regular visitors often accompanied by the sound of the various songbirds living in the woodland. You can almost always hear the sound of a kestrel or buzzard screeching as they ride the thermals or get chased by the crows.
If It Were Mine
This woodland is crying out for a little area to be cleared for a campsite, big enough for a small tent and a campfire. With beautiful views and the tranquillity of the surrounding countryside, this would be an excellent place to spend the occasional night.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
