For those seeking peace and quiet, Magerick Wood, Toutsdale, presents the ideal location to get close to nature. Out of earshot of traffic, the most frequent sounds you will hear are bird calls and the breeze in the trees.
Comprised of two distinct habitat types, Magerick Wood is both moorland and woodland. The moorland area is characterised by carpets of heather and moorland grasses with self-set pine trees growing here and there. The woodland is a beautiful mix of mostly pine and birch, with clumps of bilberry at ground level. During late summer and into autumn, berries can be harvested and make a very tasty snack, or alternatively, leave them for the resident wildlife to enjoy. Young tree saplings are coming through, perhaps the seeds have been planted by jays, who cache food for harder times, similar to squirrels.
Connected to Dalby Forest by a bridle-path running outside the wood boundary, the land has fantastic leisure opportunities for those keen on walking and biking, as well as being well part of well linked corridors for wildlife; their tracks criss-cross the moorland and pass through the wood. Roe deer can often be seen and there are several good locations for trail cameras to see what else is passing.
Most of the pine trees are of a similar age, around 30 years old, however there are occasional large and spreading specimens that are older than this, with multiple stems and branches that are ideal for climbing.
The sky above Magerick Wood is now recognised as one of the best places to enjoy the night sky in the country. The nearby Dalby Observatories have been declared a ‘Dark Sky Discovery Site’ on BBC Two's Stargazing LIVE ‘, the Dalby Observatory Site has Milky Way Status. You can find out more from the Dark Sky Discovery website and Scarborough & Ryedale Astronomical Society.
The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
Are marked in pink, on trees along the track on the south-western boundary. On all other boundaries markings are on wooden posts.
