Young poplars on Westrop Farm an addition to some valuable ancient woodland
This beautiful stand of young poplar trees on Westrop Farm is an interesting feature which covers as much as ten acres of the farm. These poplars form a new part of some beautiful ancient woodland lying along a ridge six miles in length overlooking the valley of the river Pang. This wooded ridge, standing some 280 feet above the Pang, runs in a long arc from Hermitage in the north through Cold Ash (where these poplars are), Upper Bucklebury to Chapel Row in the east. The 900 acres of Bucklebury Common (privately owned but open to the public LinkExternal link ) forms only part of the remnants of this wonderful old forest, sandwiched in a little-known area of Berkshire between the M4 and A4 trunk roads.
