We’re not too far from two newly-created national parks in the UK. One, to the north of us, is South Downs National Park, and the other is New Forest National Park to the west.

As “new” goes, it’s only new on the scale of the history of the British Isles. It was set aside as a royal hunting forest by King William I in 1079. One of its features is free-roaming horses, such as the ones you see above.
