The Forest of Kings

Autumn Beeches

The New Forest in Hampshire, England is a wild area of ancient woodland and wild heaths. For hundreds of years, the New Forest was the ancient hunting preserve of the English Royal Family. The conflict between the local peasants' needs to raise cattle and ponies, and the king's need for hunting deer and providing trees for the naval fleet have left a unique legacy on this rich and attractive landscape.

Ponies and cattle roam free in beautiful woodland glades, and make their way across desolate wet and dry heathland. This historic landscape of intense beauty, shaped by man and nature, can now be found nowhere else in the world.
