William the Conqueror planted it to hunt stags in; his son, William II (Rufus), was shot dead hunting one in it. Now The New Forest is a National Park, woods of huge trees sweeping magnificently over the sandy soil and streams, places to picnic and wander. Villages are pretty and interesting, hidden in clearings. Deer live here and much other wildlife and ponies, but fewer people than in most English places. It extends to the coast at Lymington, from where ferries sail to the Isle of Wight.
