Milford and Keyhaven Trip

Wednesday 23rd May was the day of Year 3/4’s trip around Milford and Keyhaven!

We have been learning all about the fascinating history of our local area in our topic, ‘No Place Like Home’. Nearly 1000 years ago, 1086, William the Conqueror conducted a census of the whole country and Milford is mentioned in his findings – The Domesday Book! At the time, it was more populated than Bournemouth. 1000 years later, the village of Milford-on-Sea is an amazing community with an incredible past.

On our trip, we discovered many features of our local geography. Our route took us through Keyhaven, where we spotted the war memorial before exploring the harbour. We could see all the way out to Hurst Castle!

As we followed the Danestream, we soon made it back to Milford. Did you know, the name of ‘Milford’ was removed from the bridge so that invading armies couldn’t find where they were during the war?

We learnt a lot and all really enjoyed ourselves!
