Old beech in the Brick Kiln Inclosure, New Forest
Old beech in the Brick Kiln Inclosure, New Forest
Concerns over the future supply of timber during the Napoleonic wars led to Crown Freehold woods such as the Brick Kiln Inclosure being planted in the early 19th century. The plantation still contains many oak and beech from the original planting, and a system of ditches and banks marks internal divisions. Most of these 200 year-old trees have grown tall and straight, as they do when they are deliberately crowded together, but the beech in the foreground of this photograph has grown multi-trunked and gnarly.
