Description     Land to the south east of Tunbridge Wells has few roads and is quiet, peaceful countryside of hilly farmland and extensive woodland, yet is within a few minutes drive of the Town.  Much of the wood is traditional sweet chestnut coppice, now well-grown containing many large tall straight stems useful for many purposes. We made the bench and the ridestop, from chestnut. The wood peels easily when fresh, the surface below the bark has a fascinating pattern of striations. In a good year the trees produce a hefty crop of edible chestnuts.  Some of these could be 'singled' and allowed to grow on to become standard trees.  With these are the oaks, trees associated with so many other organisms making them a biodiversity hotspot. There is a small amount of rhododendron imparting privacy to the woodland. The ground is level, easily walked and in spring has an extensive display of bluebells.

There is a whole wood management plan in place as agreed with the Forestry Commisison (FC) which covers about 40 acres around and including Mistle Wood, this can be transferred as part and modified to a new owner. There is a TPO (tree preservation order) on the wood which does not affect normal woodland management where a current FC agreed management plan is in place.

Boundaries   these are indicated by orange markings and are: west side a line of free-standing posts;  south and east are at the foot of the neighbour's fence on a woodbank;  and the north is alongside the track, min 3 metres from the track centre.

Access   is off Dundale Road along the woodland track where there is a full right of way in perpetuity.
