Description

Campden Wood is a few minutes north of the market town of Bromyard which is on the A44 that links Leominster and Worcester. The woodland is easily accessed year-round in a two-wheeled drive vehicle along a stoned track that leads to the edge of Campden.  Internally a path runs along the southern boundary that once strimmed, would allow easy access to the top half of the woodland.

Primarily made up of mature ash and larch trees, Campden also has a good number of large and mature Douglas fir. These trees have grown very tall and large and create an impressive atmosphere as you walk between them. Underneath, numerous self-seeded sycamore and hazel are growing abundantly, many were cut and cleared a few years ago, they have now regrown from their stools and are standing around 12 foot high. On the southern boundary there are a few veteran beech and oak trees, likely a hundred years old or more. These trees are stunning examples and will provide habitats for numerous animals, bird, plant and bug life.

The ground underfoot is rarely wet for long, with nice free draining and fertile soils that support a wide range of ground vegetation. Noteworthy examples must include bluebells that cover the ground in a sea of blue and green in springtime. There are also the snowdrops, wood anemones, hart’s tongue, lords-and-ladies, bramble, bracken and a variety of ferns and mosses that can be found as you walk through the wood at different times of the year.

Campden Wood is also home to a number of members of the animal kingdom, including an active population of muntjac deer also known as the barking deer which can be heard early in the morning or late at night, and seen by a patient (and quiet!) observer. Tracks of roe deer have occasionally been spotted. Badgers, grey squirrels and a variety of songbirds, and even a pair of buzzards riding the thermal currents overhead have been seen.

In summary, Campden Wood is a stunning woodland with some fantastic quality trees (from both a timber and ecological perspective) and some lovely flat areas that would support a wide range of activities.


If It Were Mine

I would keep the path on the southern boundary open and perhaps clear an area to make a nice little space to pitch a tent away from the stoned track.

The sycamore and hazel growing up in the undergrowth are nearly ready to be felled for firewood and left to grow again, introducing a coppice cycle to the woodland.

Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.

Directions & Access

  • Heading northeast out of Bromyard along the B4203, direction Stourport, drive up the hill for approximately 2 miles.
  • Once you have driven through the hamlet of Norton the road will level and then descend.
  • Shortly thereafter you will drive alongside a high sandstone wall and where the wall ends, there is a sharp turning on your left, direction Edvin Loach.
  • Turn left and drive along this un-named road for a further 0.5 miles, and when the road bends sharply to the right at the bottom of the hill, the entrance to the woodland is on the left set back from the road (point A on the plan below), indicated by a Woods4Sale sign.
  • Please park in front of the gate, (sorry we do not provide keys for viewings).
  • Walk along the track for approximately 500 metres, at this point the track will start to ascend
  • Continue up the hill for approximately 75 metres until you see a turning on your left, there will be a post marked with both white and pink paint on the left-hand side on the high side of the track (point B). This is the northern most point of the wood.
  • Continue up the hill for a further 300 metres until the track bends sharply to the right, and you see the edge of the woodland in front with a post and rail fence.
  • On the left-hand side is a small stoned area (point C). This is the entrance to Campden Wood.

Boundaries

  • The west and north boundaries are the southern edge of the track as indicated with white and green paint on wooden posts that may be offset by a short distance.
  • The eastern boundary is indicated with pink paint on trees and wooden posts.
  • The south boundary is the edge of the woodland as indicated by an agricultural fence set on a low old earth bank.
