Event description

Description

Discover the history of Lymington’s coast, salt industry and smuggling, led by a National Park archaeologist.

Learn how salt was worth its weight in gold and how it turned Lymington into a thriving town, with cargo regularly shipped to Europe and the Americas. Explore the UK’s last sea salt boiling houses, and the salt marshes which were perfect hideaways for smugglers’ contraband.
