New Forest, Hampshire

This area of southern England was first named as the "New Forest" in the Domesday Book (dated 1086) and appointed as a royal forest by William I some thirteen years later. These days, the area which remains heavily forested is much reduced, with many miles of open heathland resulting from gradual deforestation since the Bronze Age. However, there is still much beauty and there are many ancient trees to be found.
