Northgate Wood occupies the central section of a larger woodland on the outskirts of the quiet and attractive village of Ulgham (pronounced ‘Uffam’) some 6 miles north of Morpeth. Newcastle is thirty minute’s drive to the south, Northumberland National park is a similar distance west and the coast is just 10 minutes to the east.

The wood lies on level ground with open aspects to north and south. The view north is over wide arable fields, whilst to the south there is a more intimate landscape of grazing meadows leading down to the River Lyne and across to the village.

We believe the wood was planted just before the millennium. The heart of the wood is principally Scots pine fringed with broadleaves dominated by ash. The woodland edge is diversified with a number of other species including rowan, sycamore, oak and cherry. Some impressive holly trees mark the southwest corner.

Car access is excellent via a newly upgraded track leading to a hard-standing area at the northeast corner of the wood. The level ground and access track not only facilitates easy management but also lends itself to amenity. A small clearing on the sunny south edge overlooking the riverside meadows (and the deer that frequent them) would make a highly attractive locus for woodland recreation.

If It Were Mine

I’d obtain a licence from the Forestry Commission as this wood is now ready for its first thin. This could produce sufficient high grade firewood for a commercial return. I’d also tend to favour the minor species and nudge the wood towards a more diverse composition with small coupe fellings followed by a little under-planting. Plenty for the aspiring woodsman here.
