Message 4: Learn the History

The Chase is ever changing, but most of it’s history remains underfoot and untouched
– Keep your impact minimal so it will always be an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

The landscape of the Chase is constantly changing. Once a royal forest, then a busy area for mining and quarrying (which it still remains) and also a site for training camps of both world wars. Today it is a living and working environment of forestry, agriculture and of vital importance from a conservation point of view. Learn the unique and interesting history.
