Forestry Commission: Director of Forestry for England: Maps, Plans and Drawings

Maps, plans and drawings of the Forest of Dean, the New Forest, and other forests.


This series has been arranged in chronological order under the headings of the various Forests, which are themselves grouped under the name of the Division or Conservancy in which they are to be found.

There are two notable exceptions to the chronological arrangement, the Forest of Dean and the New Forest, maps of which form the bulk of the series. For these forests, maps of the whole Forest or large parts of it are listed first, in chronological order; followed by maps or plans of individual walks, enclosures, lodges etc, arranged alphabetically.
