- For Sale By Public Auction On 22nd June 2021
A fascinating mixed deciduous and coniferous arboretum which will be offered for sale by public auction, subject to prior sale, reserve and conditions, at 6.30pm on Tuesday 22nd June 2021 at The View, Hill Farm Marina, Stratford Road, Wootton Wawen, B95 6DE.
Planting commenced in the spring of 1972 and, over the last 50 years, over 250 trees have been planted of numerous species. From the widely recognised deciduous English Oak and Common Beech to the rarer Indian Bean trees and Alpine Cider Gums. Likewise coniferous species range from Scots Pine and Blue Cedar to Golden Pfitzer and Weeping Spruce, In all, an arboriculturalist’s delight.
Laid out to take advantage of the south facing slope, on a relatively free draining light sandy soiled site, the planting is divided into blocks, with a number of rides leading down from the lane gate. Essential focus is provided by the wildlife pool with water lilies and other aquatic plants, which is a haven for the many birds and mammals that frequent the woodland.
The arboretum has been well maintained over the years and has a fairly comprehensive planting record of both genus and common names, planting dates, location and notes of growing success (or otherwise). It now gives an enthusiastic buyer a superb opportunity to take the arboretum forward, continuing the management and perhaps enhancing further, its contents.
Located only some 4 miles from Coventry city centre and less than one mile from the centre of Kenilworth, the auctioneers commend this opportunity of taking on, what was one gentleman’s lifetime work.
