1 - 2 weeks availability


Created by William the Conqueror in 1079, the New Forest is largest area of lowland heath and ancient woodland in Britain. Easily accessible from London, it can appear in places to be very remote, both in time and location. This is the perfect guide for those wishing to get to know the New Forest better: a series of undemanding short circular walks, which, when tackled individually or linked together in a week's walking, form a complete circuit of the New Forest. The detailed descriptions of each route, with simple maps, contain information on local history, geography and wildlife, as well as special 'Near by' sections, pointing out additional attractions and views the New Forest has to offer on the way. Separate sections outline the background, culture and natural history of the area. This book is a comprehensive introduction to a beautiful and unique corner of England.
