Limeway Wood forms part of a larger deciduous forest classified as an Ancient Semi Natural Woodland, confirming there has been continuous tree cover since at least the year 1600.
This superb parcel of woodland offers the most desirable attributes including a fast flowing, meandering stream that feeds a pond rich with wildlife. The oak and birch are enhanced by an abundance of native tree species and woodland features that would only occur where there has been little tree disturbance.
The abundant hazel stools will make excellent canes for the vegetable patch and the holly trees provide a source of material for making wreaths and Christmas decorations as well as a food source for the local deer population.
This fertile woodland comes alive in the spring and is aflush with herbs and flowers, notably, bluebells, primroses, wild garlic and honeysuckle attracting birds and insects alike.
The wood is serviced by a good stone track suitable for a 2WD car in all seasons. The gated entrance is shared by other users and provides privacy as well as security. There is a layby to park and turn that doubles as a useful hardstanding for loading firewood.
Limeway Wood has a very secluded feel with no permitted public access. With fantastic amenity value this small wood is a wonderful place to carry out some light silvicultural work or for the kids to make dens on the weekends.
If It Were Mine
There is a Forestry Commission thinning licence in place at this wood should a prospective owner wish to carry out some light thinning of the supressed trees and allow more light in to enhance the already diverse habitat. I might also make a path to a nice spot in the wood where I could enjoy the surroundings. I’d preserve the natural features, remove any obstructions from the water and protect new tree saplings from browsing deer.
