Description  Flourish Wood lies on the western side of a small valley.

Set on a gentle slope a mass of bluebells cover the higher area where in spring the azure blue outshines all other colours in the wood. Here large oak with sweet chestnut and the white-barked birch tower over the flowers. As the land drops along a well-defined bank alder and chestnut grow in the moister parts. In the open area under the wayleave the ground is occupied by closely spaced young birch and alder down to the stream edge. The centre of the stream is the boundary.  This seems to be a preferred area for the resident fallow and roe deer who have often been seen here. A fine yew tree stands centrally, another on the wood edge which was blown in the storm of '87 yet continues to grow. Holly and rhododendron provide privacy for both owners and wildlife. 

Local area  This part of West Sussex is very well-wooded. Flourish Wood is tucked within the large woodland area of Blackfold, Denchcombe, Harrys, Carroty and Cow Woods between High Beeches Gardens, well worth a visit, The National Trust's Nymans Gardens and the fine country houses, Ditton Place and Brantridge Park.

Boundaries These are shown by mauve markings and are: the line of posts, the lane and track edge and the centre of the stream.

Sporting rights are included.

Please note Felling has taken pace recently under the cables and will soon be cleared and logged up, producing a ready supply of firewood.

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