Ponies grazing south of Denny Wood, New Forest
This open land is the western part of the Bishop of Winchester's Purlieu, a not particularly practical piece of wet and boggy land that was given to the Bishop of Winchester in the thirteenth century. The story goes that when he applied for a part of the Forest he was permitted as much as he could crawl around in a day. An earthwork defines the boundary of the Purlieu (called the Bishop's Dyke) and is still visible today.
