The Forest of Bere
The Forest of Bere
  • Description

Today the Forest of Bere covers an area of approximately one hundred square miles. It is bounded to the north by the South Downs, to the south (primarily) by coastal towns such as Portsmouth and Fareham, and stretches from Eastleigh in the west to the Sussex border.

This book looks not only at the history of the Forest of Bere but also the special character that it retains today. Its landscape has a patchwork of woods and fields with ancient hedgerows and narrow winding lanes, interspersed with villages and small towns full of character. The area is easily accessible from nearby urban areas but few of their inhabitants are aware of the Forest and what it has to offer. This book will help to change that.

Emily Preston comes from a family that has farmed in the Forest of Bere for generations and was herself born and raised in Hampshire. She has a degree in geography and has developed a career in conservation.

Steve Wallis was born in Halifax in the former West Riding of Yorkshire in 1963. He currently works as a Senior Archaeologist for Dorset County Council.
