Available to the market as a whole or in two lots Mack’s Plantation is a mature broadleaved woodland and an adjoining pastureland.
Lot 1: 5.16 acres for £59,000 (freehold)
Mack’s Plantation is a fine oak and beech woodland divided by a fast-flowing stream which provides a wetter section that hosts willow and alder. This mature woodland has delightful natural features from towering grand trees to secluded areas created by groves of holly, all set with the backdrop of the gurgling water as it makes it way through the woodland. From the roadside gateway there is a soft access track passing through the trees to an area that looks out over the woodland and the farmland beyond. In this delightful position stand two recently built wooden storage sheds providing opportunities for using the woodland in lots of innovative ways. Will it be your base when foraging woodland delicacies or a stage for creating timber products or place to take respite while processing wood for the hearth?
Lot 2: 3.84 acres £47,000 (freehold)
Mack’s Field is a long term lay of grassland that has been grazed frequently, sustaining the sward. Drainage is good in the light fertile soil providing firm ground underfoot to extend the grazing season. The stream continues through the field creating a smaller, lesser managed section to the east. Along the stream are occasional alder that influence its route, resulting in an interesting, meandering flow. The field is enclosed by hedges on all sides that have been regularly flailed to sustain a stockproof barrier. Access to the field is directly off a wide unclassified public road with ample space to manoeuvre and reverse a trailer through the gateway.
If It Were Mine
After thinning any tired looking trees in the woodland, I would plant alder and birch on the wetter ground, and oak, beech and hornbeam in the drier areas to take advantage of the light and thus develop the diversity of the wood. Bird boxes would be a nice addition to reward the avian enthusiast.
In respect of the field, I would look at making a pond to the east side of the stream, and possibly stock with fish. I would also plant alder and beech on the remaining land to the east of the stream and create an ecological haven. The field is most suitable for grazing horses or other livestock but could also be an incentivised new woodland planting project in collaboration with Natural England.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
