Description: Nestling among some of the finest countryside in South Shropshire, Woolston Wood is a delightful and wonderfully mixed woodland, well stocked with maturing sycamore, ash, oak, larch, and Douglas fir, with some areas of young coppice and other areas with more mature trees.

The wood is relatively flat at the lower level, extending up the hillside to its boundary with open farmland. The woodland enjoys excellent views to the hills and the Longmynd in the distance and has a great variety of wildlife, including badger, fox, buzzard, hawk, raven and woodpecker.  In the spring much of the woodland floor is carpeted in bluebells, and at all times of the year it is easy to walk around most of the woodland.

The main entrance to Woolston Wood is via a wooden gate, beyond which a track leads into the centre of the wood, where there is a small shed which serves as tool and wood store.  There is also a bench here.

Access: The wood is accessed via an entrance off the B4370. There is room to park on the hardstanding near the road (please ensure that you do not obstruct either of the gateways). A track continues into woodland, and along the southern boundary of Woolston Wood. This track is suitable for a four wheel drive, and should be alright for an ordinary car in dry weather.

Sporting rights: Included

Mineral rights: Included

Covenant: in common with the woodland to the west and south, there is a covenant designed to ensure that all can have quiet and peaceful enjoyment of their woodland.

Local area: There are good local shops, pubs, and other amenities with Church Stretton, Craven Arms and Ludlow all within easy reach. The Plough Inn at Wistanstow is a couple of miles away, and could be reached on foot if you enjoy walking!

VIEWING: At any time with a copy of these particulars.
