Boston Bank lies on a west-facing bank overlooking the valley above Hebden Water, a short distance north of Hebden Bridge. This pretty market town in rural West Yorkshire is midway between Halifax and Burnley both of which are about a half-hour drive.
The west side of the wood fronts the A6033, but due to topography there is no vehicular access from there into the wood. Pedestrian access is facilitated by a public footpath which links the southern part of the wood with the village of Old Town above and the public road below in two locations.
The woodland has a healthy variety of broadleaves. The northern part is dominated by some lofty beech stems while the southern part is primarily a mixture of oak and birch. In between you will also find rowan, willow and sycamore along with a few woody shrubs like holly and hawthorn.
The woodland floor is largely uncluttered and is populated by woodland associates like bluebell, fern, moss and woodrush.
This attractive wood enjoys a wonderful outlook in a prized part of West Yorkshire. It also has a very competitive price tag due to the terrain and limited access. You’ll be hard put to find an attractive woodland of this size and price anywhere else in England!
If It Were Mine
I would make some footpaths through the woodland, and perhaps install a bench at a suitable vantage point.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
