Walking in the New Forest 30 Walks in the New Forest National Park by Steve Davison

Walking in the New Forest 30 Walks in the New Forest National Park


Walking in the New Forest 30 Walks in the New Forest National Park by Steve Davison

This guidebook describes 30 day walks of between 3 and 10 miles set right across the New Forest National Park. Suitable for all abilities, the walks can easily be combined into longer routes for greater challenges, through woodland, heath and along the coast, all illustrated with large-scale OS map extracts and vibrant colour photographs. The area is also an animal lover's paradise, providing natural habitat to many types of wildlife including deer, all six of Britain's native reptiles and the New Forest's very own species of pony. The New Forest is a unique landscape of open heath and ancient woodland tucked into south-west Hampshire and south-east Wiltshire. To many, a key feature is the ancient and ornamental woods, and here can be found the greatest concentration of 'veteran' trees in western Europe. However, there is much more on offer, including 42km (26 miles) of coastline, the largest area of lowland heath in Britain and three-quarters of the valley mires in north-west Europe, as well as picture-postcard thatched cottages, ancient churches and cosy pubs. And all this located within Britain's smallest national park, within easy reach of Southampton, Bournemouth and Salisbury.
