Lyndhurst - the "Capital of the New Forest" means "the lime wood". Among its treasures are the Queen's House and the Verderer's Court; the parish church with its fresco by Lord Leighton and fine stained glass windows; the little church at Emery Down; the charming almshouses, and the Girl Guide headquarters at Foxlease. The "old Park" of Lyndhurst is where the Parkhill Hotel now stands, the new park being on the A337 Brockenhurst road. Other treasures must surely be the varied "forest" from the heathland of Parkhill to the bog of Matley, and the open forest with its ancient oak and beech to the enclosures of softwoods.
