Parish History

BEAULIEU, a liberty, in the union of New Forest, Southampton and S. divisions of the county of Southampton, 6¼ miles (N. E.) from Lymington, on the road to Hythe; containing, with an extra-parochial district within its limits, 1339 inhabitants.

The chapel, dedicated to St. Bartholomew, was the refectory of the abbey, the church of which, situated to the south-east, has been entirely destroyed (as of 1848). There is a place of worship for Particular Baptists. At a short distance from this, on the road to Beaulieu, are the ruins of the extensive barn and the chapel of St.Leonard.[1]
