War Memorial Recreation Ground, Fordingbridge

Introduction

The gates and pillars are still at the entrance to the Recreation Ground. It is not known if the gates are the original ones. The Recreation Ground has been enlarged and there is now a skate board area, large children’s play area, football pitches and a memorial garden to Princess Diana which appears to be maintained by the British Legion. There has been some tree planting.
