Holdenhurst Village, Bournemouth
Existing in the green belts land on the north-east suburbs of Bournemouth is a small isolated village by the name Holdenhurst. The small village comprises two farms, the parish church and fewer than thirty settlements. There are few facilities and no shops in the village.
The narrow lanes enable access by car through a single narrow lane. The building of the Bournemouth Spur Road in the late 1960s meant that the route had to be cut off. There is hence no public transport. A new civil parish called Holdenhurst village was established in 2013. It encompasses Bournemouth International Airport, East Parley, Hurn, as well as the Townsend and surrounding areas of Bournemouth.
The Location of the Holdenhurst village stands at the edge of the flood plain at the Lower Stour Valley. This made it an ideal location for farmers and a large number of archaeological findings have happened in this area. Some of these findings include the coins of Durotriges, and Roman coins have also been found in the area suggesting that Romans might have settled in this area.
