The hamlet of Buckler’s Hard, originally called Montagu Town, was built by the second Duke of Montagu in 1722 as a free port at a convenient landing place on the Beaulieu River. The 1740s saw demand on the Royal Dockyards increasing and to cover this Buckler’s Hard was chosen for the site of a new civilian yard to help keep pace with orders. The late 18th century and early 19th century saw a successful and productive period for shipbuilding at Buckler’s Hard, which began to decline towards the middle of the 19th century. Two maps made available by the Beaulieu Estate one from 1815 and one from 1845 both show buildings situated east of the slipway groups on the boundary between the ‘Shipyard’ and the ‘East Timber Yard’. The boundary survives as a visible earth bank and were the focus of an archaeological investigation in 2016 by volunteers under the guidance of the NPA. This model shows Trench 2, which was opened across the boundary bank and ditch that separated the ‘Shipyard’ and the ‘East Timber Yard’.
