Finding land or a wood
You may find land or a wood for sale on an agent's website. Or if you’ve got your eye on some land, but it isn’t officially up for sale, it may still be feasible to approach the landowner about your ideas (though land bought this way may be more expensive). Or put the word out in the community. Sometimes there are parcels of land on farms and private estates that may be available.
Finding out who owns the land may involve some investigation and online searching. The Land Registry holds ownership details for about half the land in England and Wales, but rural land isn’t always registered. Or contact land agents as some vendors don’t want publicity for a land sale, so it’s not advertised.
