Join the National Park's heritage mapping expert to discover the hidden past of White Moor
Humans have been shaping the New Forest for thousands of years and White Moor is no exception to this. Whether it’s large circular pre-historic burial mounds, long boundary banks, symmetrical Roman field systems or Second World War tank training and rifle ranges, this walk will teach participants how to read the landscape and what clues to look out for. As well as this, the walk leader will show how the New Forest has utilised new technologies to help map and identify these archaeological sites, to ensure they are protected into the future.

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.
