Dream Weaver forms part of a wider Ancient Woodland area lying 5.5 miles southeast of Robertsbridge and represents a lovely area to absorb woodland life.
Situated on gently sloping loamy clays, the canopy primarily consists of Norway spruce with a variety of broadleaves including oak, beech, birch and sweet chestnut. In addition, there are also a few stems of Scots pine, one of three native British conifers. Towards the west is a mix of oak, poplar, ash and hornbeam; the hornbeam would make an excellent fuel for a log burner, making use of the Forestry Commission thinning licence in place. Within the shrub below is occasional hazel coppice, hawthorn and regenerating beech. Come spring, the ground layer is awash with bluebells, wood anemones, wild garlic, foxglove and primrose.
Flanking most of the northwestern boundary is a stream that would make a nice spot for occasional camping. This area would also be perfect for a new custodian to put up a rope swing for friends and family to enjoy.
A number of feathered visitors such as green woodpecker, owl, buzzard, greenfinch and innumerable acoustic songsters delight in the tranquillity found here. Woodland mammals consist of muntjac, roe and fallow deer, wood mouse, badger, fox and hare.
Dream Weaver is accessed along an unsurfaced track and poses plenty scope for an amateur woodsman.
If It Were Mine
This woodland has a fantastic bushcraft ambiance about it; enhancing my skills here would be on the list. Perhaps a stem or two for fuel and family camping adventures would definitely feature too.
