Smugglers' Road, Vales Moor, New Forest
Smugglers' Road, Vales Moor, New Forest
This wide track along a ridge from Picket Plain is known as Smugglers' Road. At one time it was a preferred route for smugglers who brought their illicit goods inland from the coast. In the far distance, towards the left of the photo, Christchurch Priory is visible. Christchurch has a large shallow harbour, where the Avon and Stour rivers meet - one of the many smugglers' landing sites on this part of the south coast. The Smugglers' Road meets the edge of the New Forest at Knaves Ash.
