Are you interested in the past, present and future of the New Forest?
New Forest Knowledge seeks to ensure that its unique cultural heritage is available to all. It provides access to New Forest information held in catalogues, databases, maps and repositories both locally and nationally, and we are working to add more every day.
As well as providing access to information, New Forest Knowledge has been set up as a community portal where individuals and groups, of all abilities and interests, can add their own research, articles and photographs to expand our New Forest cultural heritage story.
New Forest Knowledge is a partnership between two projects within the Heritage Lottery Funded programme Our Past, Our Future Landscape Partnership: Ecademy, led by the New Forest Centre, and Heritage on my Doorstep, led by the New Forest National Park Authority. Ecademy seeks to promote information exchange and integration through the creation of an online resource; Heritage on my Doorstep seeks to engage the local community in researching and sharing the history and archaeology of the New Forest.
