Lucas Wood provides a rare investment opportunity to own a unique parcel of well stocked ancient woodland within walking distance from High Wycombe town centre.

Situated just outside the Chiltern Hills AONB, Lucas Wood is a fine example of a mature broadleaf woodland. Towering sycamore dominate but also mature beech, maple, ash, hazel, hawthorne and laurel can be found. A 10 year management plan was put in place previously to enhance the wood. Work included improving pathways and replanting species of wild cherry, walnut and yew. 

The woodland itself is a very peaceful space. There is an abundance of bird life in the canopy and red kites circle overhead continuously. There is also an impressive badger set in the centre of the wood. 

While there are no official public footpaths through or near the woodland, it is clearly well used by the local community. A local volunteer group regularly helps to maintain this special site. 

Situated just outside the town centre, High Wycombe train station is just a 5 minute walk away and access to the M40 is just a 5 minute drive.

Ward is Terriers and Amersham Hill, and the County Council is Buckinghamshire.

Boundaries: To the north and west the boundary is fenced and borders residential properties. To the south and east the boundary is open and joins woodland neighbouring woodlands.

Access: Access is on foot only but vehicle access would be possible for woodland management purposes.
