Roydon Woods nature reserve, New Forest
A typical view of beech trees on the bridleway through Roydon Woods. The Hampshire County Council website says: "Roydon Woods contains a wonderful patchwork of habitats which support wildlife typical of the New Forest but without the pressures of grazing. The 750 acre site, which is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, is mainly woodland with small areas of meadow heath, ponds and a section of the Lymington River. It was gifted freehold to the Trust by Peter Barker-Mill in 1978.

Roydon has been privately owned since the time of the Domesday Book. For a time it was monastic property but following the Dissolution of the Monasteries became Crown land for a short time. Banks and ditches provide visual evidence of centuries of forestry and farming which have produced the landscape seen and enjoyed today."
