Bucklers Hard

Bucklers Hard is a hamlet on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire, 2 miles from Beaulieu.

It consists of two rows of brick Georgian corrages on either side of a very wide street. This is all that was built of a planned new town which was to import and refine sugar.

In the mid 18th century it became a ship building centre, taking advantage of the plentiful supply of timber nearby, and of the tidal estuary of Beaulieu River.

Nelson's "Agamemnon" was built here.

There is a small maritime museum.
