Sitting at the end of the Stiperstones and the Long Mynd, Club Bank is a handsome amenity wood with ancient woodland heritage. It sits in a commanding position providing excellent views of the surrounding hills.
Club Bank is dominated with mature oak in the upper canopy, with good numbers of alder, ash, hazel and birch trees. This fertile and vibrant wood has patches of dense vegetation and intimate grassy glades connected by a discreet path which ascends to the western corner. At the herb layer you will find hard fern, dog-rose, honeysuckle, sedge and even some patches of bluebells to name but a few of the seasonal woodland blooms here.
Club Bank is accessible via a hard surfaced forest road suitable for a 2 wheel drive car to the start of the wood. The wood extends up the hill and is accessible from the hard track, the incline on this section is more steep and may be more suited to a 4 wheel drive vehicle in winter to take full advantage of its elevation.
If It Were Mine
I would maintain the woodland path and perhaps put a seat in a position to take in the view of the beautiful Shropshire hills. I would also consider creating a rope swing on one of the old oaks and clear an area so I could camp out on summer nights.
