Ringwood: Discover a traditional market town life

Ringwood: Discover a traditional market town life

When it comes to looking for somewhere to live with a difference these days, many people will find the relative quiet life and nod to the past that can be found in rural communities as a real winner. Areas such as market towns, which just scream tradition, can be great for these types of homebuyer, as they will represent a time when life was simpler and more localised.

Such an area can be found to be perfect for people who are seeking out property for sale in Ringwood. The market town is located in Hampshire, close to the New Forest, which means that it will have substantial rural areas nearby for people to head off on walks as a family.

One of the most important factors of living in a market town for those who do so will be the fact that they can enjoy customs that have been carried out for centuries with little to no changes to how they work.

One example of this can be found in Great Wakering, where the town still holds a weekly market in the centre of its town, which still takes place in the same traditional market spot as it did when it first started in the 13th century, showing that the town is steeped in history.

Other traditional practices that still take place in the area include the production of cask ales. These are made at the local brewery, which also runs five different pubs in the area, giving locals a chance to taste that which is made on their own doorstep.

As well as this, the town has a wide range of other highlights, which include its many old buildings and structures, such as an historic stone bridge over the river, for locals to enjoy and discover the history behind with their kids.

If this is not for you though, you may also want to take up a new hobby, in which the local sports centre will be idyllic. Providing swimming facilities and a range of other sports halls, comedy fans will also remember it as the set of Whitbury-Newtown Leisure Centre in the Chris Barrie led sitcom The Brittas Empire.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801458320-ADNFCR
