NEW FOREST GUIDE
WHEELERS MCE

ABOUT US

The idea of creating a useful guide for those visiting our lovely New Forest, and the much copied name 'New Forest Guide' was born in a New Forest pub back in 1995 by locals Pete (Photography) &  Nick (Web Design). We have both lived in the lovely village of Hale for many years and have written this guide simply because we love The New Forest Our aim is to provide the visitor to, and the residents of the New Forest with a comprehensive informative and enjoyable website covering all aspects of this wonderful and unique area whilst helping to support charities. Many of our pages have photographs to supplement the text, extracted from our library of more than 1,500 images. We work, eat, drink, sleep and take our holidays here, and have written this guide, (which is being constantly updated and enlarged) simply because we love the New Forest. We hope that you will visit our beautiful New Forest and come to love it as much as we do. Our New Forest Guide has local information plus many FREE Desktop Wallpapers and Images, so please feel free to download our royalty free New Forest photos for your personal use.

DID YOU KNOW?

The New Forest is England's eighth National Park. It has 61 ancient monuments, 634 listed buildings and 18 conservation areas within it's boundaries. The Forest is famous for its wildlife, particularly ponies and cattle. Although they appear to be wild, in fact they are all owned by the 400 or so Commoners in the Forest. About 3,000 New Forest ponies wander freely across the Forest's heaths, woodland, roads and often into villages. The New Forest actually has 26 miles of coastline which includes wildfowl, egrets, herons, birds of prey and, of course, the famous New Forest Ponies who can occasionally be glimpsed rolling in sand-patches on our isolated beaches.   It is also part of the wider Solent and one of the world's most famous locations for sailing. A visit to Bucklers Hard for anyone who enjoys yachting and the peace and tranquillity that it brings. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of Sherlock Holmes, nursing heroine Florence Nightingale and a not so well known lady Alice Hargreaves are all buried in the New Forest.  Alice Pleasance Hargreaves was the inspiration behind Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, when she asked him to tell her a story on a boating trip in Oxford.

WHEELERS MOTORCYCLE EVENTS

If you are a biker or enjoy motorbikes then please visit our sponsored website pages  Wheelers Motorcycle Events. The web site was set up by the New Forest Guide team to support charities. Bikers can enjoy a great day out with their  machines and at the same time support a good cause. WheelersMCE are always looking for volunteers to help with Marshalling, stewarding and any other duties that will help the event/show to run smoothly. Events build up and take down is another aspect of the programme we are always looking to cover. We will supply florescent vests and make sure you are looked after on the day/days of the events taking place.
