New Forest Knowledge Conference
Built Environments in the New Forest: Past, Present and Future
The New Forest isn’t all about trees, animals and grazing. The question being posed this year is how much do you know about the buildings of the New Forest? The New Forest Heritage Centre’s Ecademy Project is hosting this year’s New Forest Knowledge conference entitled Built Environments in the New Forest: Past, Present and Future. It will take place at the Lyndhurst Community Centre on Friday 1st November between 9:45am and 4:30pm.
Speakers include researchers and representatives from New Forest District Council, Avon Valley Archaeological Society, University of Winchester, New Forest National Park Authority and New Forest Heritage Centre, as well as one of the editors of the revised Hampshire: South, Pevsner guide to the Buildings of England.
Giles Gould, Centre Manager, said “The history of the Forest never ceases to amaze me, nevermore than when I consider its manmade structures. They are so much an integral part of a history that is often ignored, however unintentionally. We hope this conference will shed some light on what is a complex and fascinating history”.
Join us to consider how buildings and structures have shaped, and themselves been shaped by, the Forest. The New Forest Knowledge conference is part of the National Lottery Heritage funded Our Past, Our Future landscape partnership scheme.
Tickets cost £20 and can be purchased via The New Forest Heritage Centre website at or in person at the Centre. Lunch and refreshments are provided.
