Ford Oak

Adjacent a ford on the upper reaches of Highland Water a majestic Oak stands proud, its age, 300 years or so, makes it the senior member of the local forest community. No picture could properly convey the size and presence of this beautiful woodland Leviathan. Highland water is only just beginning at this point, but flushed and bolstered by a myriad of tributaries and gullies, this humble gravel bedded stream will become the Lymington River, feeding into one of the busiest waterways in the world...the Solent.
