National Park In Numbers

Around 6,500-7,000 animals - ponies, cattle, pigs, donkeys, sheep - grazing on the Open Forest

Nearly 10,000 hectares of ancient semi-natural woodland, including the greatest concentration of ‘veteran’ trees in western Europe

19,500 hectares of lowland heath, the largest area of this rare habitat remaining in the UK

31,000 hectares of national or international importance for nature conservation – over half of the Park and a higher proportion than in any other English National Park
