This part of the New Forest (N & E of Lyndhurst) is a lowland plateau, tilted slightly down to the E, with isolated hills of varying sizes. The marshy headwaters of the Beaulieu River form the southern boundary of the map. Nearly all other marshes are narrow: there are NO large tracts of marshy heathland so typical of the New Forest. The eastern half of the map and the NW corner are enclosed plantation forests, with varying degrees of undergrowth. The natural forest is extremely runnable with some large lawns (areas of close cropped grass) and areas of more typical beautiful heathland. The area is split into two by the W-E flowing Bartley Water, a contorted steeply-banked stream, which can rise quickly after rain. Only the 1:15,000 courses cross this stream, and safe crossing points are shown on the map.
