SU1914 : Southern edge of Pitts Wood Inclosure, New Forest

taken 10 years ago, near to Godshill, Hampshire, Great Britain

Southern edge of Pitts Wood Inclosure, New Forest
Southern edge of Pitts Wood Inclosure, New Forest
This line of conifers marks the southern edge of Pitts Wood Inclosure, a plantation first established (with oak) in 1775. The Ashley Cross plateau is off to the right, with Ashley Bottom and Must Thorns Bottom off to the left. There are several bomb craters on this damp heathy slope, a result of stray bombs that missed their range targets up on the plateau during the Second World War. There is a particularly large one at SU19691426, just above the centre of this photo, surrounded by bracken. The low light and poor visibility in this photo is due to heavy rain.
