In which I tread through a carpet of fallen leaves, acorns, moss and fungi in the New Forest
In which I remember my first walk though Anses Wood in the New Forest
In which I wish I were in Anses Wood again
In which I leave Ocknell Plain behind and walk through four woods - Holly Hatch, Anses, South Bentley and North Bentley - all different from each other in age and character, but each with its own beauty.
In which I find an old book and an old wood, and meet Joan Begbie...This is my first post on this new blog, explaining how I came to be following in the footsteps of Joan Begbie, who published "Walking in the New Forest" in 1934.
