The Information Source for New Milton


This Community Web Site is designed both for the residents of New Milton and the surrounding area and for the thousands of visitors who come to New Milton, Barton on Sea and the Villages of Ashley and Bashley - as well as the surrounding New Forest area. New Milton is a vibrant and lively town located between the rolling hills of The New Forest and the Sea, west of the Solent. Bournemouth is some 10 miles west of New Milton and Southampton some 20 miles to the east. The main shopping areas of Station Road and Old Milton Road include a wide range of independent and high street names and the town is home to Bradbeers, one of the country's oldest family owned Departmental Stores. The area is popular with walkers, adjacent as it is, to the 145 square miles of The New Forest and with the Cliffs and Beachside walks at Barton on Sea.
