Lotting Details/Boundaries

Location Plan



The woodland is located to the south of the village of Bromeswell, to the east of Melton and adjoins Woodbridge Golf Course to the west. It is accessed by a track opposite the Orford Road/Eyke Road junction (see Location Plan). The popular town of Woodbridge is located approximately three miles to the west.


The woodland extends to approximately 9.53 hectares (23.57 acres) and is known as “Bromeswell Wood”, shown on the attached plan. The Property comprises two woodland parcels with access from a central track with direct access onto the public highway, off Orford Road. Lot 1 extends to approximately 6.159 hectares (15.22 acres) and comprises a plantation of mostly sweet chestnut. Lot 2 extends to approximately 3.378 hectares (8.35 acres)and comprises mostly pine with some hardwood species. The soil is described as deep, well drained, sandy soil. Some very acid soils with bleach subsurface arise, especially under woodland.

The woodland currently includes species such as:

Sweet chestnut, Wild cherry, Field Maple, Rowan, Ash and Birch, all planted in 1988/89, and Pine, planted in 1991.

Up until the late 1980’s the land was farmed within an arable cropping rotation. The woodland was created as part of a Forestry Commission Farm Woodland Scheme, which expired in February 2019.
