Move to Breamore – an especially idyllic village in the New Forest – and you may very well find yourself in the stocks.

It is easy to see why, with thatched cottages in abundance, a thriving community spirit and facilities such as a school, a shop, a village hall and a lovely pub – the Bat and Ball.
The present village of Breamore (pronounced Bremmer from its original Saxon name) lies along the busy A338 about ten miles south of Salisbury, between Fordingbridge and Downton. The rosy brick’ cottages are mostly 17th century, built along the turnpike road by families whose descendants live locally to this day. Villagers worked on the Elizabethan Breamore House estate or leased farming land from the estate.
It is a pretty village with colourful gardens and flowering trees by the road. Seventeenth century stocks stand very near their original site opposite the pub. However villagers must have been fairly well behaved as records show the stocks were seldom used.
The original village of Breamore lay to the west of the road across the marsh, where people have grazing rights for geese and cattle and one is often held up while a procession of geese cross the road. It was centred round the Saxon church and is worth exploring to find old hidden cottages, and to take time to visit the church.
Here too is the gateway to Breamore House park. The house is an Elizabethan manor house built in 1583 by Queen Elizabeth’s Treasurer, William Doddington. It stands in a splendid position on the hill slope, backed by sheltering woods and looking out across a stretch of farmland and 17th century water meadows. The house is still a family home but is open to the public in the summer season. There is much to see – even a ghost, or two, if you are lucky (or unlucky).
Within the parish is the Marsh (an important surviving manorial green) and the River Avon: both are listed as Sites of Special Scientific Interest. Other parts of the parish fall within the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs, and are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Breamore railway station opened in 1866. It was served by the Salisbury and Dorset Junction Railway, a line running north–south along the River Avon, connecting Salisbury to the North and Poole to the South. It closed in 1964, the disused station still exists on the road that leads east from the A338.
You will not find any traces of the major battle that took place in the 5th century near the house but, if you walk up through the woods you come to the medieval maze, known as the Miz Maze.
Breamore House stands north-west of the church. The original house was a very fine late 16th-century building of brick and stone, but was unfortunately burnt in 1856. It was restored on the old lines, incorporating the old masonry that was left, and now from a short distance still resembles an Elizabethan building.
At Breamore House, visitors can enjoy full size replicas of numerous trades and crafts including a blacksmith, village shop, school and dairy. The museum boasts one of the finest collections of steam-powered farm machinery, tractors, barn machinery and historical tools.
It has been used as a filming location for such films as Churchill at War, The Woodlanders, Children of the New Forest and Florence Nightingale.
