Neck Wood is located near the small hamlet of Ewell Minnis and the village of Alkham.

The woodland is surrounded by open fields on most sides and well positioned on Wolverton Hill allowing for lovely views across the countryside.

From the main entrance at the top of Wolverton hill, the private track leads up through the centre of the woodland. Hazel, ash, birch and overstood chestnut coppice are common throughout. The coppice can be cropped in sections over four years as part of the management plan. Mature oak and yew can also be found at the southern end of the wood. If accessing the wood from the southern gate, steeper terrain leads up through dense birch and chestnut coppice to the summit. Because this woodland has been designated as ancient, it is protected as a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and as such is a wood that forms part of our national heritage.

There are good tracks throughout and numerous open areas for woodland activities. The wood is quiet and private and also wonderfully light thanks to its location and surroundings.

Positioned between Folkeston and Dover the woodland is just a short drive from the coast. The village of Alkham is also within walking distance and boasts an excellent pub. 

Ward is Alkham and Capel-le-Ferne and the County Council is Kent.

Boundaries The boundaries are fenced to the north west bordering the fields and open to the north east following the road.  

Access There is good vehicle access from the main entrance at the north end of the wood. Parking is possible inside the woodland itself.

Lease Full details available on request. Points to note: Approx 990 years remaining, public access is permitted, although rarely exercised and not listed on the Woodland Trust. Sporting and mineral rights are excluded.
