Join a guided walk and be part of WWII German invading army as we attempt to take Beaulieu Village and the bridge crossing.

When & Where
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.
