BRAMSHAW COMMON, IN THE NEW FOREST, WHERE THE COMMON RIGHTS ARE PROTECTED AGAINST VIOLATION FOR EVERMORE

BRAMSHAW COMMON, IN THE NEW FOREST, WHERE THE COMMON RIGHTS ARE PROTECTED AGAINST VIOLATION FOR EVERMORE

Bramshaw village is about six miles north of Lyndhurst, and a mile and a half farther on one enters the belt of lovely woodland that encloses Bramshaw Common. Happily this is one of the New Forest's open spaces that are preserved for ever from building or other encroachments. The manorial rights of the common were purchased in 1887 by the late Mr. Briscoe Eyre. It has since been brought under the control of the National Trust, and the common rights are protected for evermore. There is much fine timber in the woods around, which, although no longer needed for the Navy, nor yet by the charcoal burners, of whose huts there is a trace in the neighbourhood even to-day, helps to build up the national reserve of forest woods.
