The Ringwood area lies within the counties of Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire, and is known for its unspoilt scenery and contrasting landscapes. West of the Avon, the chalkland of Cranborne Chase forms rolling downs with sheltered streams and dry valleys, while to the east the sandy heathland of the New Forest forms high ground with open plateaux. The west of the district comprises a full sequence of largely unfaulted chalk.
