Main entrance to South Bentley Inclosure, New Forest
Main entrance to South Bentley Inclosure, New Forest
A gravelled track leads into the South Bentley Inclosure from the southeast, a relic of the RAF/USAF airfield that occupied the Stoney Cross area during the Second World War. The enclosure itself is the oldest surviving in the New Forest, and it is also believed to be the oldest planted oak wood in the country (and possibly western Europe). The vast oaks, with their fine crowns, visible in the photograph were planted as acorns in 1700.
