A Boot Up the New Forest
A Boot Up the New Forest
  • Description
  • Related

The New Forest is generally regarded as the easiest walking country in Britain and Europe. Under foot, the paths usually stick to dry soils of gravel and sand, and skirt the occasional peat bog. Even if you find a problem, diversions are possible just about everywhere, as there is a right of public access across all this open landscape of heath and woods from Ringwood to Southampton.

Ancient oaks survive as stately specimens in woods that were otherwise stripped for Nelson’s navy. Wildlife abounds. Rarities can be locally commonplace. You are likely to see Dartford warblers, harriers and a range of flora and fauna including insect-eating sundews, dragonflies and multi-coloured fungi. Deer numbers are as high as anywhere and there are the famous New Forest ponies.

The ten selected walks, ranging from 3 to 8 miles, suit the needs of families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk, and reflect the many varied facets of the area – its people, its history, and its landscape and will help first time visitors to experience some of the great scenery the area has to offer. Many of the walks feature a pub along the route. Halsgrove’s new-format guidebook, containing maps, photographs and useful information will ensure a great walking experience. Packed with colour, the book is an ideal reminder of a visit to the New Forest.

Rodney Legg is a prolific author and historian who has published hundreds of country walks. Nationally he is active in the environmental movement having been chairman of the Open Spaces Society since 1989 and a member of the ruling council of the National Trust from 1990.
