Hikers making slow progress through the mire, Strodgemoor Bottom, New Forest
These hikers are walking straight through the mire in Strodgemoor Bottom. They are following the line of a fence that marks the edge of the Crown lands of the New Forest. The boundary is also that between two parishes, making a straight line between Lugden Barrow in the south and the Knaves Ash barrow in the north. It is marked as a dotted line on the 1:25000 scale OS map - perhaps these hikers thought it indicated a path. The sounds of displeasure grew louder as they disappeared through the trees to the south - the boundary fence crosses the boggy stream that drains the Cranes Moor basin.
