An attractive parcel of amenity woodland on the edge of Ipswich
Located on the edge of the village of Sproughton just to the west of the county town of Ipswich.
Part of the Parish of Sproughton forms a section of the urban edge of Ipswich and is separated from the main part of the village by farmland and the A14.
The former sugar factory and the Farthing Road industrial estate, adjacent to Junction 54 of the A14, are also located in the parish of Sproughton, but separated from the village by the A14.
Hazel wood comprises a single parcel of 5.71 hectares (14.11 acres) of mixed broadleaf, amenity woodland. There is a diverse mix of species, such as Oak, Willow, Beech, Sycamore and Horse Chestnut. It is classified as Ancient Woodland and we understand has been managed in accordance with the designation.
The access to the wood is via a private track from the corner of Lower Street and Sproughton Road to the south, shown coloured brown on the sale plan. The track runs to the east of Langham House and Manor View following a track along the edge of an arable field to the east of the woodland.
The wood is also accessible via a footpath which lies along the banks of the River Gipping where some trespass has historically taken place. The north east boundary of the wood adjoins the railway line.
Acreage: 14.11 Acres
Take the exit from the A14 (Junction 54) onto Sproughton Road towards Sproughton. Just before entering the village there is a sharp left-hand bend where the road becomes Lower Street. Take a right turn before the bend along an un-made road with an arable field on the right and a hedge on the left. Continue along the track until Hazel Wood is found on the left.
