Heathland in the rain, Ashley Walk, New Forest
Heathland in the rain, Ashley Walk, New Forest
The gravel track in the middle of the photo is an off-road cycle route between Frogham (on the western edge of the Forest) and the village of Fritham (in the middle of the northern part of the Forest). Bell heather is blooming pink in the foreground. The gorse covered mound on the horizon towards the left is the earth-covered remains of a submarine pen target - burying it proved to be the easiest way of 'removing' it when the Second World War bombing range at Ashley Walk was closed down. The bump of conifers in the far distance are the tops of trees growing on Ticketsbury on the southern edge of Pitts Wood Inclosure.
