Beaulieu Heath Car park access – (updated 29.06.2018)
The normal access track from the Lymington road is now open again as of 28th June. NOTE: the Hawkhill entrance is locked with a Forestry padlock. The Hawkhill entrance is is now for the use of Free Flight flyers only.
The airfield is available as normal at any time between 8:00am and 8:00pm this month. All normal regulations and advice applies. Please look at the members area for advice is you are unsure.
Be aware of the presence of large numbers of ponies with foals, and also large herds of cattle, which are currently roaming free in the forest. The Car Park is a favourite resting place for stock, and can become fouled. Please help by using a broom to clear the pits area, and other places as needed.
BIRD NESTING: there has been a notable increase in the incidence of small bird species on the heath in recent weeks, so we hope that the restrictions on access has helped the wildlife. We will report when more definitive information is available.
The BMFC thanks all permit holders for their understanding and patience over recent closures.
