The Grand Centenary Exhibition staged by Milford-on-Sea Historical Record Society opens today in the church hall.
Sadly it only runs until next Saturday 8 August which is far too short for such an interesting exhibition.
The displays look back more than a hundred years to the arrival of Admiral Cornwallis-West who lived at Newlands Manor. Colonel William Cornwallis-West’s children married well and brought the famous to the village.
Fortunately, there was not enough money to develop the seaside village into a resort so it remains delightful.
Open 10am to 7pm except the last day Saturday when the exhibition closes at 4pm.
