Located 5.5 miles east of Robertsbridge, Nuzzle Wood is part of a wider gated woodland and offers a quiet spot to absorb woodland life and the natural environment. Access is through a locked gate and along a track.
Situated on gentle slopes amongst loam over clay soils, the canopy comprises majestic oak, sweet chestnut, ash, hornbeam, birch and poplar. Durable and light in weight, poplar is one of the quickest growing broadleaf species in the northern hemisphere and is often used as veneer. In the shrub layer below you will find hazel, hawthorn and occasional holly. A new custodian could consider a stem or two for logs, making use of the Forestry Commission thinning licence in place. Designated as a Plantation on an Ancient Woodland Site (PAWS) the ground layer is awash with bluebells, wood anemones, primrose and foxglove in the warmer months.
Bordering the banks of a meandering stream to the south, there are ample locations to create a camping spot to sit around a small fire.
An assortment of feathered visitors such as green woodpecker, owl, buzzard, greenfinch and countless acoustic songbirds have been spotted in this tranquil location. Woodland creatures include muntjac, roe and fallow deer, wood mouse, badger, fox and hare.
If It Were Mine
A woodfired bathtub would work well in this peaceful spot. A few of the hornbeam stems would be good fuel for my burner at home too. A rope swing for the kids and some trail cameras on trees to record nocturnal visitors would be a good starting point.
