A walk around Lymington
 
Bath Road
There's a popular children's play ground in Bath Road recreation ground.

Bath Road didn’t, as you would suppose, get its name for the open-air swimming pool at the end of the road. The name came from an earlier swimming pool, called Leg’s Seawater Pool, situated farther up the road, roughly where the ‘Fine Food 4 Sail’ cafe is at the moment. Apparently in the late 18th century, immersing oneself in seawater was all the rage.
The recreation ground and the boatyard were both marshland in the past and the high bank running alongside Bath Road was the waters edge.
 
Lymington boatyards supplied many ships for the wars with France during the 14th century.
