Description   The Suffolk Coast and Heaths has some of Suffolk's finest scenery and this woodland is located between between Orford and Aldeburgh. The soils are sandy and free draining making year round use of the woodland possible. A perfect location for a multi-use woodland, supplying firewood, wildlife observation and private camping.  A guide to the area can be seen by clicking here - Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB

The old maps, eg 1927 OS map, show the area as open ground but judging by the number of bluebells, a fine display in spring, and the ancient trees this area has been wooded for some time. The land may have gone through a brief heathland phase before the present trees were planted.

There are about 7 ancient trees, mostly old oaks in a band by the roadside. With these are maturing sycamore and beech with silver birch. Much of the woodland to the rear is Corsican and Scots pine, a fine plantation of conifers.

The neighbouring Sudbourne Hall is undergoing development at present, although not affecting the woodland, a brief history of the Hall and village can be seen HERE.   A guide to the geology of the area can be seen HERE.

Boundaries    they are the road frontage with post and wire fences on the other three sides. The western boundary is rather obscured by bracken. The southern boundary does not include the gate of the track and is the fence to the north of these.

Sporting Rights   these are in hand and go with the wood.   

Access    is off a public highway, the Snape Road, with a pull-in off the road on the verge. At present there is no vehicle access to the wood.
