The New Forest and Salisbury Cathedral

I spent a few days in the New Forest (a heathland and forest in south-west Hampshire) over New Years which was lovely. The weather wasn’t great, but I managed to get out for a spectacular walk along the coast line and have a fun New Year’s Eve in the charming village, Milford on Sea. I also went to Salisbury, the cathedral city in Wiltshire. Salisbury Cathedral was built from 1220 to 1258 and has the tallest church spire in the UK. It contains the world’s oldest working clock (from AD 1386) and has the best surviving copy of the Magna Carta. This little excursion was a great way to start 2016!
