A six-acre slice of rural woodland between Sowerby Bridge and Ripponden is for sale, with a guide price of just £40,000, that will appeal to anyone who wants a calm and tranquil retreat in the Calderdale hills.
The woodland is approximately one mile north of the village of Barkisland and is accessed via a grass track beyond Highlee Lane from Scammonden Road. A public footpath also runs from Highlee Lane to the northern most point of the woodland.
The site is a mixed deciduous woodland, which is made up predominantly of mature and regenerated species of trees including birch, oak, ash, hawthorn and rowan. There’s also holly, bluebells, bilberry and other flowers that fill it with colour during the spring and summer months.
The woodland is largely enclosed by a mixture of stone walls and fences, with a beck forming the northern boundary, close to where approximately two-thirds of an acre is also designated ancient and semi-natural woodland.
“This is a lovely stretch of woodland that will appeal to a wide range of buyers. People will be attracted to it for amenity or recreational uses and others will be interested in its environmental credentials and the conservation of its biodiversity, in the battle against climate change.
“It’s a beautiful area, and with a realistic guide price of £40,000, we’re expecting it to generate a lot of interest.”
Earlier this year Dacre, Son & Hartley sold a 20-acre stretch of woodland above Otley, in the village of Weston, following a successful crowdfunding campaign that was organised by Wharfedale residents. More than 1,500 people donated to the campaign which raised £133,000, including a philanthropic loan from environmental campaigner Julia Davies of ‘We Have The Power’.
