New Forest

10 February 2007 (4th Week)

Area: New Forest
This trip is full

Marion and Helen will be heading down to the New Forest in Hampshire. It’s called “forest”, but it’s actually a scenic mixture of rich woodland and open heathland, and it’s called “new” but it’s actually thousands of years old (trees were first cleared in the Bronze Age!) We shall wander through this varied landscape and picturesque villages. The forest is the hunting ground of ancient kings, and we may be lucky to spot a few deer — though hopefully no hunters! On the moor, we will likely encounter wild ponies and birds of prey. The hills and valleys, flora and fauna should all contribute to a fine day’s walk.
