Principally Norway spruce woodland set in strikingly beautiful hilly and wooded scenery, where a winter stream flows along the eastern boundary.  The spruce is well-grown and ready for thinning which would allow more broadleaves to colonise the wood. There is a hard track along the western boundary and another track which gives access into the woodland.     

The route of Stane Street, the Roman road leading from Chichester to London passes by the western side of the woodland. Roman roads were engineered with a stone base and surfacing, hence Stane (= stone) Street. Who knows, there may be evidence of the road and Roman artefacts beneath the surface soils.

Access   Is off Honeywood Lane - a public road,  along a private track (Monks Lane) leading to Monks Farm and stables. An electrically operated gate keeps the access to the private owners of the house, the stables and the woods. This is usually open in daylight hours. The entrance to the woods is past the barns then between the close boarded fencing, see photo, along another private track.  Keep the fencing on the left. There are full rights of way along this route with maintenance contribution according to use made. On arriving at the metal gate the wood will be seen on the left, with the For Sale and name signs.

Boundaries  These are shown by red markings and are: to the west it's the track edge, south there is a bank with free-standing posts and the east is the edge of the field.

Covenant   The purchasers of this woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
