New Forest Heritage Centre Blog

It’s an exciting time for us all here at the New Forest Heritage Centre. We’ve recently changed our name and branding and we’re intending to embark on a substantial redevelopment under the leadership of our new Centre Manager, Giles Gould.

This blog is intended to give an insight into who we are, what motivates us, and what we’re planning to do. We aim to update it on a fortnightly basis, and really hope that you find it interesting!
