A FOREST CRUSADE

A significant new book by local historian Peter

Roberts was recently launched at the New Forest

Centre. ‘Saving the New Forest: New Forest

Association - The First 150 Years’ explains how a

small group of people in the mid-nineteenth century

became seriously worried at the steady increases

year on year in the enclosure of land in the Forest for

timber production, and in 1867 decided in very British

Peter signing books

fashion to set up an association to rescue

it. In 1871 the government placed a Bill

before Parliament ‘to disafforest the New

Forest’, which would have left just 100

of the 60,000 acres for the Commoners to

exercise their rights and for the public to

enjoy. The book relates why this happened

and how the New Forest Association, only

the second conservation society to be set

up in Britain, saved the New Forest for

the nation. The book continues with the

numerous campaigns to combat threats

to the Forest over 150 years through to

the present day, when the Association has

re-branded itself as ‘the Friends of the

New Forest’ in order to clarify its 21st

century role to the public.
