Hordle

"HORDLE, (or Hordwell), a parish in the hundred of Christchurch, Lymington division of county Hants, 6 miles S.E. of Brockenhurst railway station, and 4 S.W. of Lymington, its post town. The village is situated on a lofty eminence near the coast of the English Channel, commanding a view of the Needles and the Isle of Wight. Many rare fossils, shells, &c., are found in the cliffs along the shore, which are composed of layers of bluish clay alternated with gravel. It is mentioned in Domesday as having salt-works. The land is divided between arable and pasture, with about 120 acres of garden ground. The tithes were commuted for land and a money payment under an Enclosure Act obtained in 1811. "
