Peace, tranquility and a great spot for a picnic whilst exploring the 400 year old Knightwood Oak
Knightwood Oak is a great place to stop and enjoy a picnic, 'away from it all' and try to imagine what it would have been like over 400 years ago when the famous Knightwood Oak tree began to grow.
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.
