The England region

A wonderful region to take a holiday in, with the New Forest National Park and the south coast to visit. There are many attractions in the whole of the region and many wonderful towns and villages with holiday accommodation. There are plenty of day excursion attractions in all areas e.g. Paultons Park, Marwell Zoological Park. Together with excellent shopping areas such as West Quay in Southampton and Castle Point in Bournemouth.

The New Forest lies to the west of Southampton Water in south-west Hampshire and covers 37,677 hectares. Centuries of human management and livestock grazing have meant that the forest is a combination of heathland, ancient woodland, wetlands and grassy plains, with many inclosures of both coniferous and deciduous woodland. The commoners’ ponies and cattle roam freely across the forest, controlling and shaping the vegetation as they graze.

‘New Forest’, or ‘Nova Foresta’, was created by William the Conqueror as a royal hunting ground, and forest laws were enforced to protect the hunted animals and their habitats. These strict laws ensured that the hunting of deer and wild boar remained the closely guarded privilege of the King and his followers.

Over the centuries, deer hunting became less important, and by the 17th and 18th centuries timber production was the primary economic use of the New Forest. The New Forest Acts came into force, and areas were fenced off to protect young saplings from the grazing animals. It wasn’t until the Act of 1877 that two thirds of the forest were set aside for commoners to exercise their traditional rights.

Deer populations were left unmanaged until the 19th century when they reached levels that threatened the timber crops and competed with the commoners’ stock for food. The Deer Removal Act was established in 1851 and it was resolved that all deer were to be removed. Although total removal was not achieved, the numbers did reduce dramatically, and the Forestry Commission's keepers continue to keep these numbers under control today.

Recreation is important in the New Forest and with a large proportion of the forest being Crown land, access to the greater part is open and free to all. Local users and visitors from farther afield regularly enjoy participating in a wide range of recreation activities including horse-riding, dog walking and cycling.

Brockenhurst is a lovely New Forest village with a variety of shops and eating places as well as a main line railway station. You can hire bicycles in the village and cycle through the wonderful surrounding forest trails.

Brockenhurst

Brockenhurst, New Forest, Hampshire, lies within the Heritage Area of the New Forest - William the Conqueror's forest is a unique landscape of international renown. The European Union is funding work to restore and preserve this. Europe's largest surviving area of ancient pasture woodland which has been made into a National Park. The New Forest is all around you and wild ponies, deer and cows roam at will. The Rhinefield Ornamental Drive is worth a visit, especially when the rhododendrons are in bloom in the spring.

The North and South Weirs streams join and as one flow through Brockenhurst. In Brookley Road in the warmer months of the year the stream flows across the road, commonly referred to as The Splash, in Brookley Road. This is fine in summer and autumn but when the weather is colder, with possibility of the road icing over the pipes under the road are opened to take the flow. There is a second ford in the Waters Green area of the village and this flows continuously throughout the year. From beyond this the Weirs stream meets the river formed by the Blackwater and Ober Water to become the Lymington River.

Although set in a delightful forest environment, Brockenhurst has road and rail communications with the rest of the country that rival what is found in many large towns. The M3 motorway access to the M27 from junction 13 and via junction 1 on the M27 there is access to the A337, Cadnam, Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst, Lymington Road.

The village itself has an abundance of eating places and good variety of shops including gift shops. There are cycle hire shops, there are organised walks or you are free to take your own walks through the beautiful scenery.
