Buckler’s Hard in the spotlight

There has been a recent spate of media interest in Buckler’s Hard. In September, a reviewer from the Sunday Times Travel Magazine came on a visit, while a team from VisitBritain made a film to make the River Cruise a Hampshire highlight.

Both came on the back of another two recent visits by the BBC. Radio Solent daytime show presenters Alun Newman and Lou Hannan pre-recorded a feature about off-season visits and interviewed Living History guide Pam Ansell about the history of the 18th century shipbuilding village.Desktop-news-BBC-Radio-Solent-(870x489)
