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 turn left, not right... This is my very first walk with Joan Begbie, making our way through Eyeworth and Studley Woods from Fritham. There were some disagreements and ambiguities about the right way to go, but that didn't spoil a beautiful tramp through the woods.
