Ringwood has a long and fascinating history. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 and retains many features of interest. There is a potted history of the town composed by Tony White here. The historic map of 1872 pictured here illustrates quite how much the town has grown in recent decades. Today, much of the town centre is protected as a conservation area. The map here shows the precise extent of this.
The Ringwood Neighbourhood Plan has been approved by the Town Council and has been submitted to New Forest District Council and New Forest National Park Authority to progress to the next stage. It is currently the subject of a final 6-week consultation, ending on 29 September 2023.
