Brockenhurst - New Forest - HampshirePhoto by Madeleine Mildenhall

Brockenhurst, New Forest, Hampshire, lies within the Heritage Area of the New Forest - William the Conqueror's forest is a unique landscape of international renown. The European Union is funding work to restore and preserve this. Europe's largest surviving area of ancient pasture woodland. Consideration is being given to creating a National Park. The New Forest is all around you and wild ponies, deer and cows roam at will. The Rhinefield Ornamental Drive is worth a visit, especially when the rhododendrons are in bloom in the spring.

In Brookley Road in the warmer months of the year the stream flows across the road, commonly referred to as The Splash, in Brookley Road. This is fine in summer and autumn but when the weather is colder, with possibility of the road icing over the pipes under the road are opened to take the flow. There is a second ford in the Waters Green area of the village and this flows continuously throughout the year. From beyond this the Weirs stream meets the river formed by the Blackwater and Ober Water to become the Lymington River.

Although set in a delightful forest environment, Brockenhurst has road and rail communications with the rest of the country that rival what is found in many large towns. The M3 motorway access to the M27 from junction 13 and via junction 1 on the M27 there is access to the A337, Cadnam, Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst, Lymington Road.
