As well as clear and easy walking paths for an excellent walk with the dog, this forest is famous for 'Blanchard's Column'. It marks the place where French aeronaut Jean-Pierre Blanchard, together with his American co-adventurer Dr Jeffries, touched down from their successful channel crossing by hot air balloon in 1785 - the first ever!
Train-spotters will also relish the sight of Eurostar trains whizzing under the bridge just before the car park.
