Photographer's Note

This is a darkroom cyanotype, printed on fibre-based paper (large neg, contact-printed in hazy sunlight for about 20 minutes), and the result scanned on a flatbed. I was teaching traditional darkroom techniques, and this was in fact one of the demonstration prints. I.E. this isn't the result of P'shop manipulation!

Bere Forest is today the rump of a much larger area of woodland which covered much of S.E. Hampshire in the Middle Ages and up to the Eighteenth Century, being one of the remaining parts of the Royal Forest of Bere, used by English Kings for hunting. It once covered an area stretching from the River Test at King's Somborne in the west through Hursley, Eastleigh, Bishop's Waltham and Denmead to Rowland's Castle in the east. The forest was used as a source of oak for the navy to use in ship building.
