SU3205 : Driftway between the Denny and Parkhill Inclosures (winter), New Forest

taken 12 years ago, 3 km from Balmerlawn, Hampshire, Great Britain

Driftway between the Denny and Parkhill Inclosures (winter), New Forest
Driftway between the Denny and Parkhill Inclosures (winter), New Forest
This is a view west along the driftway with the Denny Inclosure to the right and the Parkhill Inclosure to the south. Several old oaks and beeches survive in the driftway, and there is a well-worn path (which eventually leads to Clayhill, south of Lyndhurst). A number of old pollarded beeches were felled here for firewood in 1969, quite unnecessarily as they were not "dangerous". This was an example of the rights of estovers being stretched too far, and the Minister of Agriculture intervened in 1970 to end the abuse. [Info from Colin R Tubbs "The New Forest" (2001)] Compare this photo with the summer view from exactly the same spot: SU3205 : Driftway between the Denny and Parkhill Inclosures (summer), New Forest.
