Bere Regis plans, creation and ongoing development of May's Wood

A Photographic History

These wonderful Woods, covering much of the farmland south of Shitterton and running up to Black Hill, were the idea of Dr Brian May CBE. Having purchased the land in 2012, he shared his 100,000 tree planting plans and then procedded to turn his dreams into reality. This page acts as a pictorial record following that journey and also showing you how the Woods are developing today and into the future. As a village, we are immensely grateful for Brians vision and generations of villagers to come will benefit from his genorosity.
