BIKERS!!  Travelling from Lyndhurst, if you set your sat nav to 'quickest route' this might take you along Beckley Lane which is not an easy road to ride with pot holes and sharp bends!  Keep going on the A35 until you see the brown sign for the Motorcycle Museum using the B3055 on your left.

Congestion at Lyndhurst
When travelling to visit us please be aware of the congestion that often occurs at Lyndhurst - there are alternative routes around Lyndhurst to the Museum.

NEW FOREST PONY OWNERS’ PLEA TO DRIVERS:    #ADD3MINUTES TO YOUR JOURNEY FOR THE WINTER

New Forest commoners and organisations are appealing to all drivers to slow down as the clocks go back, to prevent the usual huge rise in animal deaths and injuries in the longer nights.  Nearly 100 free-roaming animals were killed or injured in the New Forest last year.

A quarter  of these, 25 animals, were killed or injured on just four key routes in the evenings in the two months after the clocks go back. Sadly about three quarters of the accidents involved local drivers.

New Forest commoners, the families who own the animals that maintain the Forest, have teamed up with other organisations to focus efforts on reducing accidents this winter.They are asking locals and visitors to add just three minutes to their journeys and drive slowly across the Forest.  Thank you.
