How small is the smallest pony you’ve ever seen? We saw a tiny one! Look at the bird standing just behind it and you’ll see how very small this pony was.
Buckler’s Hard forms part of the Beaulieu Estate and is an 18th Century shipbuilding village situated on the south bank of the Beaulieu River. Three of the ships which fought at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 were built here. Today the entire village is a maritime museum. Every cottage in the terrace seemed to be a mini-museum in its own right: the Shipbuilder’s Cottage; the village pub; the chapel – the whole village was laid out to be explored.
