Notes: Sloden was surveyed by John Norden in the early 17th century, and was enclosed in 1775 for the planting of timber trees. In 1895 John Wise described 'Sloden, with its thick wood of yews, standing, massive and black, in all their depth of foliage mixed, in loveliest contrast, with clumps of whitebeams'. While there are still many yews, a large number are in poor condition or dead, according to Peter Evening in New Forest Walks 'from exposure to the prevailing winds'.
