WOULD you like to own your own woodland? This could be your chance.

Estate agents McCartneys have been instructed to sell two quillets of woodland, which form part of Brineddin Wood, Shropshire, just over the Herefordshire border.

The word quillet derives from French legal terminology and has passed into English and Welsh law. It means a narrow strip of land.

The quillets are 5.30 acres and 1.17 acres and form part of the south-facing oak wood and wildlife site.

The ancient site enjoys no special protection apart from felling restrictions imposed by the Forestry Commission.

The quillets are reached via a public footpath from Chapel Lawn.

The wood dominates the village of Chapel Lawn, near Bucknell, and its presence enhances the Redlake valley, arguably the most beautiful and tranquil in south west Shropshire.

The quillets are shown in the Tithe Apportionment map of 1847.

The sale of the largest quillet of 5.30 acres gives a fantastic opportunity for someone to own an amenity or recreational area.

Both would form a fantastic site for educational purposes, or just to enjoy and protect your own piece of woodland.

The acreage of the two lots is as follows:

Lot 1: 5.30 acres

Lot 2: 1.17 acres

The guide price for the whole 6.47 acre freehold is £35,000.

These quillets are offered for sale by informal tender.

Tenders close on Monday, October 21, at noon.
