AUCTION PACK NOW AVAILABLE https://www.cartmells.co.uk/auction-packs/ Lot 1: Haile Great Wood - 10.47 hectares (25.88 acres) - Guide Price £55,000 It is thought that Haile Great Wood has occupied its sheltered location on the steep sided valley of Kirk Beck since at least 1600 and is the only intact example of its kind in the West Cumbrian lowlands. It is designated as ancient semi-natural woodland with several different woodland types within, which reflects the complex geology of the area. It is therefore not surprising that the woodland has been classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest as an extensive valley woodland system. A Management Agreement awarded by Natural England, formerly English Nature expired in 2010. Potential exists to enter into current environmental stewardship programmes.
The woodland has a natural water supply courtesy of Kirk Beck and was fenced as part of the previous Management Agreement.
Lot 2 - Carletonmoor Wood parcel NY0309 0480 - 4.81 Hectares (11.89 acres) - Guide price £25,000 This parcel of broadleaf amenity woodland has easy access courtesy of the two minor roads which bound it along its easterly and southerly borders. It is attached to a parcel of similar broadleaf woodland along its westerly boundary and to the north is open farmland. The woodland is generally flat sitting at a height above sea level of 120m. Ragga Beck transects the woodland via an open ditch. Recent management of the woodland has seen areas of 'thinning' with timber removed followed by natural regeneration. Lot 3 - Carletonmoor Wood NY0209 8370 (1.00Ha/2.47ac) - Guide Price - £10,000 A useful parcel of broadleaf amenity woodland with easy access just off the minor road between Egremont and Haile and adjacent to Lot 2. This woodland is attached to a similar parcel of woodland along its westerly boundary but is mainly surrounded by open farmland. It sits at a height above sea level of between 120m and 130m with a generally northerly aspect. The understorey is generally quite open allowing space to move through the woodland.
