Landor Wood is located within a wider gated woodland near to the West Sussex border, 11 miles south of Guildford with Horsham a similar distance to the east.
Sitting amongst level loam over clay soil, the mature canopy was established roughly 30 years ago and largely comprises Scots pine, recognized as one of Great Britain’s three native conifer species. It has a reputation for its sound timber attributes. Many of the stems here are of good quality and are suitable for joinery and veneer. Towards the western side are a variety of broadleaves including oak, birch, hazel coppice, cherry and the occasional ash. In addition, there is a number of majestic oak along the northern boundary and secondary access, beyond which are far reaching rural views. There is a good-sized open glade in the south west corner that would make a superb spot to star gaze on a clear summer’s night.
Come spring and summer, patches of bluebells, primrose, foxglove, gorse, rushes and fruitful blackberry embellish the ground layer, producing a lovely colourful scene in and around the stems.
Many feathered visitors, such as little owl, sparrowhawk, woodpecker and tuneful songbirds enjoy the tranquillity of this location. An array of woodland creatures including deer - both fallow and roe, badger, fox, brown long-eared bat and adder have all been spotted.
Landor Wood offers numerous possibilities of light woodland management and recreation for an aspirant woodsman. It benefits from vehicular access suitable for a 2WD along a hard track that crosses just over a culvert onto the dell, with the addition of a soft track accessing the northern part of the wood.
If It Were Mine
The glade towards the southwest corner would make a lovely wildflower meadow and a perfect spot to camp and gaze up into the cosmos. Perhaps a Scots pine or two could be spared for a craft project at home, one could mill it on-site!
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
