Situated in the South of England, in the county of Hampshire, Ringwood is a smalll market town in the New Forest area. The Forest and immediate surrounding area was given National Park status in March 2005 in recognition of the many qualities that the Forest holds.It is Britain's smallest National Park being approximately 145 square miles in size and once a royal hunting ground for King William I and his noblemen, in the 12th century AD.
The rare blend of open heathlands and ancient woodlands makes the New Forest a unique and very special place, the underlying features of which have changed little over the centuries.
