The New Forest, Hampshire to Charmouth, Devon - 20th June 2011

After a night in Oxford, The Van continues its journey down South, stopping off for for a bit of actual camping at the Roundhill campsite, just outside Brockenhurst in the New Forest. The following night we stay over with Sean and Michelle in their new gaff; Hamish comes over for a beer too. Next day, we take Fred's great-Grandmother out for a spot of Lunch at the Fisherman's Haunt pub in Burton, near Christchurch. After lunch, it's time to head for Devon, with a stop off in Charmouth, on the Dorset border - a place Nosher has been to several times since the 80s, including this trip
