A hike taking in some of the WWII experimental sites operating in the north of the New Forest. Our first section takes us through the site of Millersford Experimental Research Station where static explosives were tested before heading south to explore the WWII Bombing Range known as Ashley Walk. This walk will be an opportunity to explore what survives and will be brought to life using period photos including aerial and ground photography, oral histories, old documents and maps.

Organiser

New Forest National Park Authority

The New Forest National Park was designated in March 2005. Its unique landscape has been shaped over the centuries by grazing ponies, cattle and pigs which roam free. Majestic woodlands, rare heathland and a spectacular coastline provide fabulous opportunities for quiet recreation, enjoyment and discovery.

The New Forest National Park Authority has statutory purposes and socio-economic responsibilities as specified in the Environment Act of 1995:

  • To conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the area.
  • To promote opportunities for the understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the Park by the public.

Working in partnership with other organisations it is also the Authority's duty to seek to foster the economic and social well-being of the local communities within the National Park.
