  • Sort your hay fever NOW! Tips from The Natural Health Hub.

    Sort your hay fever NOW!

    Hayfever sneezing girl 600x400 min The Natural Health Hub’s owner Sue Leach specialises in the treatment of hayfever.

    "If you get homeopathic treatment now, instead of waiting for the season to start, not only can it help you suffer less – it could get rid of your symptoms altogether," says Sue.

    The catkins are out, bulbs are blooming and the trees’ buds are bursting into life… which means some people are already getting first hints of hayfever. Despite the cold snap we’ve been having, anyone whose weak spot is tree pollen is beginning to succumb to those telltale signs

  • The great snowstorm of 1908 and a disaster in the Solent

    Lymington's great snowstorm of 1908 - and a disaster in the Solent

    On 25 April 1908 a blizzard caused a terrible collision between Lymington and Yarmouth and snow covered the New Forest

    These photographs were taken in Lymington during the great snowstorm of 25 April 1908 when snow accumulated several feet deep in Lymington. The blizzard evoked memories of a previous cold snap in January and February 1881 when the South Coast experienced large snowfalls.

    Lymington had also suffered from plummetting temperatures from Christmas Day 1739 throughout January 1740. All trade and work was impossible in such extreme temperatures; a bowl of boiling strong punch changed to solid ice within eight minutes, spittle froze before it reached the ground and bread could

  • The rise and fall of Lymington's salt industry

    The rise and fall of Lymington's salt industry

    For over 700 years Lymington was a principal manufacturer of salt until high taxation and coal costs led to its demise.

    Map of Eastern Section Milford Manor 1720 salterns north of Hurst Spit Early societies needed salt in considerable quantities for culinary, tanning and curative purposes and it's likely that the salt industry along the south coast of Hampshire dates from at least Saxon times. Lymington's salt marshes provided an excellent place for salt production from the Middle Ages to the 19th Century as they benefited from strong sunshine and low humidity which helped evaporation.

    The exact start date of Lymington's salt industry is unclear. The first references to salt in the local area can be found in the Domesday Book (1086) which lists 22 salt

  • LYMINGTON:
    GEORGIAN MARKET TOWN AND FAMOUS YACHTING CENTRE

    Lymington is a pretty Georgian market town in the south of the New Forest.

For many years Lymingtonians have made their living from the sea or the river - as boatbuilders, fishermen, sailors and in past centuries as salt workers and even smugglers! Today Lymington is an internationally famous yachting centre with a population of almost 17,500.
