About Lymington

Located in the New Forest area of Hampshire, England, Lymington is a port town on the west bank of the Lymington River on the Solent. It looks out toward Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, where Wightlink operates a car ferry service. The area is part of the parish of Lymington and Pennington. Due to its location near the New Forest and its harbor, the town receives a high volume of visitors. There are three marinas, making it a major yachting hub. In 2015, there were 15,726 people living in the parish of Lymington and Pennington.

Buckland Rings, an Iron Age hill fort, was the original center of human habitation in the Lymington region. The fort’s hill and ditches are still standing, and in 1935, archaeologists excavated a section of the walls. It is estimated that the fort was built sometime in the sixth century B.C. At adjacent Ampress Hole, archaeologists believe they have discovered another Iron Age settlement. Later settlement (as opposed to mere occupation) is indicated by the Domesday Book, but evidence is scant (1086).

In the sixth century, settlers from the Isle of Wight known as the Jutes established a town they called Limentun. Old English tun meant a farm or hamlet, and limen came from the Ancient British term *lemanos, which meant elm tree.
