Photos of the New Forest

...and sometimes other places

New Forest Walker is a record of my walks with my border collie Harry recording the changing seasons and diverse wildlife around our home in the New Forest, with occasional forays to other beautiful places.

The First Frosts on the New Forest

Nov 16 2013 | New Forest | 1 Comment

What a wonderful autumn we’ve had so far – a bit wet in places – but then there are days like these, the first frosts on the New Forest. Frost, with sunshine and mist – perfection. Staying local, Harry and I head to Linford and take an extended walk around the top of Pinnick Wood.

Beacon Hill, Berkshire

We head off to Newbury to check out where Jon will be working temporarily and decide to make the most of the outing and take Harry for a walk up Beacon Hill, an Iron Age Hillfort. We’ve seen it signposted many times, but never had time to stop and stare. Now’s our moment.

Fox Hill Sunset

A wander around the Fox Hill area of the central New Forest on a blissfully sunny and still afternoon. I park at Andrews Mare car park which is in a holly holm on the Stoney Cross plateau, just south of the A31 off the road towards Emery Down. It’s a lovely peaceful area of the Forest.
