Discover the New Forest
Discover picture postcard villages, flora and fauna and of course the roaming New Forest ponies, cattle, donkeys and pigs. This unique area has associations with smuggling, witchcraft, dragons, ancient forts, and royalty. William the Conqueror set aside this area as his royal “forest”. A royal hunting ground for deer. This enclosed area still, practices the ancient “commoning” laws. There is a Verderer’s Court in Lyndhurst, the Capital of the New Forest which still sits.
