Close to Southampton is the New Forest. The “New” Forest was in fact created 1000 yrs ago as a place for William the Conqueror and his successors to enjoy their sport of hunting wild deer and other animals.
Today, the New Forest, which is a National Park, is home to 3000 wild ponies and other animals and a popular destination for rest and relaxation. The ponies roam freely amongst the woodland and heath land and can be seen on the village commons. One half expects to come across Robin Hood and his Merry Men in any clearing. We shall briefly stop at the spot where William Rufus (William the Conqueror’s son and successor) was killed by a stray arrow .
