The Admirals’ Heritage Trail was created to commemorate the bicentenary of the death of Milford-on-Sea resident Admiral Sir William Cornwallis.
At his own request Cornwallis was largely forgotten over the 200 years since his death in 1819 but over his career his significant naval achievements altered the course of British History. This trail retraces aspects of Cornwallis’ life and highlights the people and places he knew. Follow the trail and discover a world of conflict, intrigue and endeavour right in the heart of the New Forest.
