Bucklers Hard

Bucklers Hard lies beside the river on the Beaulieu estate in the New Forest. Here, on the river bank, many of the great fighting ships of Nelson's navy were built using New Forest oaks. These include the 'Swiftsure' and the 'Euryalus' which appear in the 'Boney' chapter of SARUM. The story of this eighteenth century shipyard is told in the 'Albion Park' chapter of THE FOREST.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The Guillotine lives on! Within Paris’ 11th district, at the corner of the streets of La Croix-Faubin and Roquette, there are five concrete plates that pop out of the asphalt around them. Those five spots are what is left from the French guillotine. These marks of the former French judicial system have been kept and are still visible today.
