New Forest History


The New Forest was originally deciduous woodland. Some areas were cleared for cultivation from the Bronze Age onwards; the poor quality of the soil in the New Forest meant that the cleared areas turned into heathland "waste", which may have been used even then as grazing land for horses.

The New Forest was created as a royal forest by William I in about 1079 for the private hunting of deer. Formal commons rights were confirmed by statute in 1698. The New Forest became a source of timber for the Royal Navy and plantations were created in the 18th century for this purpose.

Felling of broadleaved trees and their replacement by conifers, began during the First World War to meet the wartime demand for wood. Further encroachments were made during the Second World War.

Further New Forest Acts followed in 1949, 1964 and 1970. The New Forest became a Site of Special Scientific Interest in 1971, and was granted special status as the New Forest Heritage Area in 1985, with additional planning controls added in 1992. The New Forest was proposed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in June 1999, and it became a National Park in 2005.
