A History of Bournemouth...

Before Bournemouth was a haven for tourists, the district between Poole and Christchurch was a vast wild heathland, known as Bourne Heath, which extended as far as Dorchester. This vastly unpopulated land was the perfect haunt for smugglers who shipped in stolen goods from around the country and further afield.

So great had smuggling been on the South Coast in the eighteenth century that in the 1720’s a petition was delivered to the House of Commons in London. The petition asked those in charge to put a stop to the illegal goods run that threatened the livelihoods of local manufacturers and businesses in Poole and Christchurch. Despite the locals’ actions, the underground business continued to thrive along the coastline, even creating local names out of association, such as Smuggler’s Cove, also known as Lulworth Cove.

We will have live music as well as pre-auction entertainment and stalls.
