Buckler’s Hard is probably my favourite spot in Hampshire. It’s a beautiful old shipbuilding village on the Beaulieu River and became so due to its protected location, tidal access to the Solent and the ready supply of timber from the Beaulieu Estate and surrounding New Forest.
A fantastic little museum and beauty spot - there really is something for everyone!
On February the 18th, I was privileged to visit the Caird Library & Archive at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich with other Navy Records Society members as part of a trip I had arranged. A fascinating afternoon filled with naval history, research chat and even a beer or two...
High cliff faces, rocky headlands, crashing waves and views as far as the eye can see. It doesn't take much to see why Cornwall is so well loved by holidaymakers, or tv & film setting scouts. Most of the county's coastline has featured in Poldark by now and it's more popular than ever before...
I’ve been fortunate to grow up within a short distance of the coast, and have since moved to Hampshire, which has some of the most beautiful forested coastline I’ve found. Both the Dorset and Hampshire coastline is filled with history, another love of mine, and so, I’ve been able to mix it with my love of the outdoors and go on some beautiful walks, in all weathers!
