Forest Enterprise Land
East of England

In 1998 Forest Enterprise and the British Horse Society agreed a new deal for horse riders on Forestry Commission land. The agreement gives permission for free access to many of the Commission's forests, particularly in Scotland, Wales and northern England, but also in East Anglia too. In parts of southern England permits may be required.

If you would like to ride in a Forestry Commission forest, contact your local office (see below). They will be abel to tell you where you can ride and where you will need a permit. Forests may be closed from time to time due to forest work or other events taking place.

For Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex, contact the East Anglia office on 01842 810 271.

For Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, contact the South East England office on 01420 23666.

For Cambridgeshire, contact the Northants office on 01780 444 394.
