Badger Wood forms part of an Ancient Woodland which was replanted about 50 years ago. Planted with predominantly beech, the trees are growing well on the fertile magnesium limestone soils. The trees are dense in number with both ash and sycamore scattered throughout this rich and vibrant site.
The land is completely flat apart from a few depressions in the ground where it is presumed stone was once extracted to build the walls that make up the wider boundaries. There is excellent access off the quiet lane, through a locked gate and along a hard surfaced track. To the south there is woodland, to the north beyond the stone wall there are agricultural fields and a peaceful country road lies to the west.
The woodland has a rich biodiversity; a chance hare or mouse can be seen, along with numerous birds including the grey partridge, woodcock, woodpecker, tree sparrow, buzzard and even a shy goshawk. In spring the ground is covered in a carpet of bluebells, at other times of the year the ground below is clear and easy to walk through as the beech tree canopy restricts most other vegetation.
The woodland is situated 2 miles from the M1 motorway and 10 miles from Sheffield and is a beautiful example of a typical English beech wood. The purchase of this wood presents the opportunity to harvest a substantial amount of firewood and is a stunning setting for camping weekends under the stars.
A woodland such as this offers a wealth of opportunity; the current owners have been carefully working to extract some woodfuel and carrying out woodland crafts. Such an interesting, well-located property as this is a real gem.
If It Were Mine
The beech would benefit from a 30% thinning to allow the remaining trees to put on more diameter. This should be done to favour the best quality trees whilst keeping a close eye on the squirrel population.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
