The 18th Century Forest
By Peter Roberts
Timber, threats and theft; cows and corruption; mean shacks, murder and mansions; pigs, people, power and place men. Find out about this intriguing century of change.
And a bit about Peter for those of you who do not know him! A lifelong Forest resident, Peter is passionate about conserving the unique charm and character of this corner of Southern England for future generations to enjoy. Peter was born in Hythe and always headed inland to the Forest for walking, cycling, camping and orienteering. He has gradually drifted north-west over the decades through Ashurst and Minstead to Hale. He researches, writes and gives talks. Peter has been a Verderer, President of the Hampshire Field Club, and is a past Chairman of the New Forest Association (now called Friends of the New Forest). He is a keen photographer.

Entrance: £3 on the door; refreshments available.
