A Walk in the New Forest - May, 2010

The New Forest (called that by William the Conqueror in 1079 when he cleared settlements to make it his new hunting forest - why change the name now?) is a great walking area. Many suggestions for walks in this area can be found here.


It's going to be a beautiful day... 15.1 hours of sun forecast, which duly arrived (we were lucky - the next weekend, the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May, had its traditional dreadful weather)


The best walks start and finish at a pub... This one is The Oak Inn at Bank, near Lyndhurst


Some very nice properties around here...


Anyone for Poohsticks?


The circular walk (about 5km) followed this curving stream for much of its length



In the bright sun, this beautiful fungus was acting as a natural uplighter


And of course, we met the locals...


Back at The Oak Inn for the traditional end to a good walk!
