  • Harrison (Haugham and Burwell) Woodlands is believed to have been in existence since the early 1600s and is an attractive commercial woodland extending to c.483ac (195ha) and is being offered for sale as a whole. It comprises mixed age and species of both Conifer and Broadleaf trees and benefits from good internal access tracks. Situated in a rural location, the woodland maintains a tranquil and quiet character whilst still offering potential purchasers the opportunity to acquire a well managed commercial woodland.

    The woodland generally lies on flat ground 70-85m above sea level with a narrow valley running along the south western edge. The soils are freely draining and slightly acidic but base rich and there are a number of ponds located throughout the woodland.

    The woodland is a Planted Ancient Woodland Site (PAWS), with conifers being removed as part of the restoration of the ancient woodland. The woodland is also home to a Scheduled Ancient Monument as well as an HER monument record for earthworks.

    WOODLAND MANAGEMENT PLAN

    A 10 year Forestry Commission Woodland Management Plan commenced in 2022 and is in place to provide management guidance for both improving the commercial operations and enhancing the condition of the woodland with habitat management. Thinning and felling operations have been undertaken and provide an opportunity to remove diseased Ash and non-natives, and the next generation of tree planting has begun ensuring a diverse woodland in terms of age, structure and species range.

    A Woodland Tree Health Grant is available subject to the necessary works being carried out and a claim being submitted. This agreement runs to September 2026.

    COUNTRYSIDE STEWARDSHIP

    A Countryside Stewardship Higher Tier Scheme was entered into in 2023 with a 5 year work programme currently in place for woodland improvement, alongside deer and squirrel control and management providing an annual revenue of £46,687.58 per annum across the site, subject to meeting the terms of the scheme.

    The Countryside Stewardship Scheme will be transferred to the purchaser and the annual payment for the year in which the woodland is sold will be apportioned between the vendor and purchaser.

    The selling agent advises prospective purchasers to review all of the associated Woodland Management Plan and Countryside Stewardship Scheme paperwork before submitting an offer.

    ACCESS AND BUILDINGS

    Access to and within the woodland is excellent, on clearly defined stone tracks and rides throughout, facilitating timber extraction and management operations with gated, well defined access points and ample splays for timber lorries.

    There is also a wood yard comprising two adjacent steel portal framed buildings. In addition there is a large concrete yard area situated within easy reach of the buildings.

    LOCATION

    Harrison Haugham and Burwell Woodland is located close to the village of Muckton, situated in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The land benefits from good transport links and is within easy travelling distance to the market town of Louth.

    SPORTING, TIMBER AND MINERAL RIGHTS

    There is potential to operate a Game Shoot within the woodland, and there are populations of both Roe Deer and Muntjac living in the woodland offering a potential purchaser with a number of sporting opportunities. These rights are included in the sale where they are owned.

    Deer management is currently undertaken by a local group and it is possible that this arrangement can continue subject to the parties agreeing terms.
