There is a right of way to the wood as shown blue on the sale plan from point A to B and across the field to point C.  Please note that the wicket gate in the woodland fence is the right of way into the wood.

A north facing site on a mineral soil derived from Silurian shales.  The previous crop of Douglas and Larch was felled in 2016 and produced a large volume of sawlog material.  Following the clearfall, the wood was fenced.
