Hampton Ridge: views, wide expanses and bracing walks
In which I pause under trees in the rain at the heart of Hasley Inclosure in the northern New Forest
In which I find a haunted wood and memories of a woodsman's cottage, and spend some peaceful moments sitting on a bench deep in the forest.
In which I am surrounded by skylark song, and learn some New Forest history. In particular, I am surprised by Second World War archaeology masquerading (according to the OS map) as tumuli.
