Fern varieties in QE Country Park, Hampshire

Queen Elizabeth Country Park is Hampshire’s largest country park, sited on 2,000 acres of open access woodland and downland within the East Hampshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Located on the A3 just south of Petersfield, QE Country Park is approximately 15 miles north of Portsmouth. In 1928 the Forestry Commission purchased the land at Holt and War Down, when it was no longer used for grazing, and used the area to plant trees for timber production. In 1966 Hampshire County Council purchased Butser Hill with the aim of creating a new Country Park, Queen Elizabeth Country Park was formally opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1976.
