The Story of Lymington

The story of Lymington The Story of Lymington
Walk The Story of Lymington Lymington High Street in the 30s

Walk through the heart of the town and follow its journey from a planned Norman new town, with a sheltered port offering an ideal crossing point to the Isle-of-Wight, through its salt making and smuggling days, right up to the affluent sailing centre you see today.

Walking down the High Street, you can see that Lymington is still very much a Georgian town with elegant brick buildings, but in medieval times, you would have seen a very different Lymington. The buildings would have been timber framed - and we can give you a tantalising glimpse of one which remained hidden for many years!

This walk starts in the High Street at the War Memorial outside St. Thomas's Church and ends at the Town Quay.
