A short walk from Knightwood Oak car park, a gravel track (suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs) leads to the largest and perhaps the most famous oak tree in the New Forest.
The Knightwood Oak is the largest oak in the New Forest, at 7.4m girth, and surely one of the oldest.
It is still going strong today and is a spectacular example of the ancient art of 'pollarding', the traditional way of harvesting wood without killing the tree.
A shady spot to bring a picnic, 'get away from it all' and try to imagine what it would have been like over 400 years ago when this tree began to grow.
