Sotterley Wood forms the south western corner of a much larger area of woodland known as Titsall Wood. Ideally located in a picturesque location to the west of the village of Shadingfield with good access via a long stoned farm track suitable for most vehicles.

It is rare to find woodlands in the south east of England that feel really secluded and away from the busy world that encroaches everyday life. Sotterley Wood offers that rare piece of tranquillity.

Two small sheds will be found within the woodland, these have been used for wildlife photography, aided by the camoflage hanging in the windows. These can also be used for shelter and storage. These are subject to ongoing review as part of the SSSI provisions.  The present owner has put up lots of bird boxes.

For the dryer months there is good vehicle access along the track shown on the plans, for the wetter months a car parking area has been allocated inside the gate by the main entrance, this will help preserve the track for future use.

The woodland is predominantly hornbeam coppice, it has been deemed such a good example of Suffolk hornbeam coppice it has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest click here for detail and HERE for views on management.

Open fields lie to the south and west ensuring the woodland is filled with light. The edge of the woodland has a thick understorey providing cover not only for wildlife but also woodlanders.

Access  from the A145 is along a farm track, where there is a right of way, to the main gate.From here to Sotterley Wood there is a right of way along the woodland track through Titsal Wood.

Boundaries  there are free-standing stakes on two sides, the other side are boundaed by the farm track.
