Other areas

The parish of Marchwood is made up of many smaller areas of informal open space. These can be found dotted all over the parish but especially along Kingfisher Way, Woodpecker Drive, Bilberry Drive, Reed Drive, the Shorefield estate and Admiralty Quay.

The Parish Council is currently working with New Forest District Council to try and link these areas up and create a healthy walk around the whole village. It is hoped in time to produce a leaflet that will detail the walk and points of interest.
