Hampton Ridge: views, wide expanses and bracing walks
Hasley Inclosure in the New Forest: a young wood on an old hill
In which I pause under trees in the rain at the heart of Hasley Inclosure in the northern New Forest
Amberwood, Sloden and Alderhill: memories and magic among the trees
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.
Hampton Ridge: skylarks and history
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.
