Large blocks of mature woodland/amenity land in the South Midlands area only occasionally come onto the open market. The opportunity now presented gives buyers the chance to purchase a useful acreage of mixed deciduous woodland which has been managed for timber production. The trees include good stands of oak with some ash and scots pine with an understory of bluebells and wild flowers in the Spring together with a rich diversity of birdlife. Originally part of the Skilts Estate (The bulk of which was sold in October 1948) there is an area extending to some 9.51 Acres (3.85 ha) of newly planted mixed woodland including sycamore, oak, alder etc. which will, in future years attract additional grant payments (further details from the auctioneer). The majority is South and South/East facing on the slopes of Gorcott Hill, easily accessed from the A435 dual carriageway. Lying some 14 miles South of Birmingham City Centre with excellent road communications via the M42 Motorway Junction 3. The local towns of Redditch, Alcester and Stratford-upon-Avon are all within easy driving distance.
