Home : Mini-bus day-trips : - New Forest
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.
