The CÉVENNES


A vulture's eye view of the wildest area of France


Causse M&eacutejean
Join NatureScene as we fly with the vultures across the limestone plateaus (the 'Causses'), and swoop into the dramatic Gorges du Tarn. Climb the granite peak of Mont Lozèmre and explore the wealth of scenery of the varied local mountains. The contrast of limestone, granite and schist where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean provides us with the richest wildlife and scenery in Europe.

The NEW FOREST

Longwater Lawn
Take a fifteen minute stroll with NatureScene through the forest of the English kings. The New Forest in Hampshire, England is a wild area of ancient woodland and wild heaths. This site is highly pictorial. Just sit back and enjoy it as the text and pictures scroll by, revealing a thousand years of man and nature cooperating to create a scenic wonderland.

REYNARD THE FOX


A MEDIEVAL TALE RETOLD


REYNARD the FOX HOME PAGE
A rewrite by DAVID DICKENSON of the most popular tale ever told.
The tales of Reynard the Fox have been delighting all of Europe for centuries. Such stories are ageless, and are as enjoyable today as they were 8OO years ago. His legendary escapades largely began in the Twelfth Century and were so instantly popular that for centuries they became the widest known tales throughout all of Europe. They have been built upon by medieval man and handed down largely by word of mouth..
