Woodgreen Village Welcome Pack

Are you new to the village? The purpose of The Welcome Pack is to get you started, with specific contact information for you to follow up according to your circumstances. We hope you will come to love living here as much as we do, and become as active as possible in our various enterprises.

Woodgreen Walks

Our 2019 calendar featured 12 short walks originating in Woodgreen and the surrounding area. It included over 50 beautiful photographs illustrating the routes and was a sell-out! The walks are described in more detail on the accompanying website:

Woodgreen History

For 2017, the shop calendar adopted a historical theme with old photos, memorabilia and stories about our village and its people. In the end, we could only show a small fraction of the material we amassed. Subsequently, we put a website together to provide a more comprehensive and permanent record of our findings:

Woodgreen Village Hall

A unique venue for hire: built in the 1930’s, Woodgreen Village Hall outwardly is a rather typical example of community buildings of that era. However, when you enter the main hall you are greeted by something special and unique which is the reason the hall has a Grade 2 listing. The internal walls from dado rail to ceiling have been decorated with murals depicting village life as it was in the 1930s.

Tom’s Field Camping

Toms Field Camping is situated with fantastic views and direct access to the New Forest. Please browse our website for information about the site and our New Forest Camping location.
