Four railway stations in the New Forest have new signs on the platforms from this week that remind passengers they are entering the National Park.

The signs say ‘Gateway to the New Forest National Park’ and are being installed at the stations in Ashurst, Beaulieu Road, Brockenhurst and Sway.

Martin O’Neill, Director of Information and Visitor Services for the New Forest National Park Authority, said: ‘Railway stations are an important gateway to the National Park for local people and visitors and these signs give a sense of arrival and identity.

‘They also promote a green transport message: there are four railway stations within the New Forest National Park so people have a great opportunity to leave the car at home and take the train into the heart of the New Forest.’

The railway station signs are part of wider work which has included marking the boundaries of the New Forest National Park.
