New Forest Knowledge is just one of a variety of projects that are part of the Our Past, Our Future Heritage Lottery funded Landscape partnership scheme, run by the New Forest National Park Authority.
This project is focused on digitising the archive of information and material held in the New Forest Centre, Lyndhurst. Our aim is to make all of this accessible online for everyone. We are passionate about the preservation of our New Forest and making the historical records we are looking after available to you and future generations.
Our archive includes hundreds of old photographs that have been kindly donated to us over the years. Some of these have been passed down through generations and there is very little information known about them. For example, do you know anything about the older images of Lyndhurst high street shown here? Could you identify the date they were taken?
Please let us know in the comment section if you have any information or thoughts. Follow our Facebook page for more interesting historical finds from the archive!’
