"Dragon's teeth" on Yew Tree Heath, New Forest
These wooden stumps are found alongside the roads throughout the New Forest, and are one of the Forestry Commission's methods of preventing vehicular access to the heathland. In the 1960s the numbers of tourists camping and caravanning on the open forest swelled and in the early 1970s these posts and ditches were dug to protect the Forest. Official campsites were created throughout the Forest to cater for visitors.
