Llanferres Bank occupies a bright location on the lower western edge of a substantial private gated woodland near the attractive village of Maeshafn, in the Clwydian Range ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. Mold is about 15 minutes to the east and Ruthin a similar distance to the west. The A55 dual carriageway is just 8 miles to the northeast enabling easy access from Manchester and the West Midlands.

The wood has a gentle west-facing aspect on moderate slopes overlooking grazing fields beyond which are lovely views across the valley to the summit of Moel Famau (554m) and Offas Dyke.

The wood is dominated by beech dating from the 60s and 70s, but it also contains elements of sycamore and ash plus the occasional sweet chestnut. On the lower western edge there are some more mature stems with fuller canopies. Aside from a few woody shrubs and some light regeneration, the woodland floor is clear and easily walked. The broadleaved species present are well suited to the lime-rich soils and are growing well. A programme of progressive light thinning would ensure the optimal development of the stand as well as yielding logs for hearth or campfire.  

Access is via a well-found hard track that runs from the public road all the way to the east edge of the wood. An unsurfaced track links with this, cutting downslope near the south end of the wood to give good access to the lower western edge.

If you want a small easily-managed stake in the Welsh countryside with tranquillity, amenity and the fun of managing a small wood then this is a good candidate.

If It Were Mine

I would enjoy feeding my wood-burner with home-grown produce. I also suspect that many a summer’s evening would be spent near the woodland edge watching the sun go down, with barbeque aromas and glass in hand…

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