Blog posts


Welcome to the New Forest National Park Blog.

This blog will give an insight into life at the New Forest National Park, a unique landscape of ancient woodland, mire and heath intimately connected to the villages, small-holdings and farms of the Forest.

The National Park was established in 2005 extending from the wooded slopes of Wiltshire in the north across the central New Forest plateau in Hampshire to the open coastline of the Solent in the South.

It covers 220 square miles (569 square kilometres), making it the smallest national park in the UK. It is also home to more than 34,000 people.

Posts on this blog will primarily be written by staff at the National Park Authority, revealing insights into work to protect the Forest's natural landscapes and cultural heritage, as well as promote better understanding and enjoyment of the Park's special qualities.

We hope you'll enjoy our blog - and if there is a topic you'd like us to write about then please drop us an email to
