The New Forest was set aside as a hunting forest by William the Conquer more than 900 years ago, and is one of the largest lowland heaths remaining in Europe. This landscape of ancient woodland, picturesque villages and heather covered moors and heathland stretches down to the coast, and is fringed with salt marshes and mud flats. Close to the New Forest is the start of the chalk hills of the South Downs, stretching eastward for more than 90 miles to the spectacular white cliffs of Beachy Head. The Downs offer an exceptional variety of rare plant and wildlife species, thriving on the high chalk downland, the small fields and the deep wooded valleys of the Weald, all of which can be enjoyed from over 2,000 miles of well managed trails for walking and cycling.
