Hengist Caravan Site, near Christchurch, Hampshire
Hengist Caravan Site, near Christchurch, Hampshire
Following World War Two, when it again became possible to take a holiday on the South Coast, an inexpensive way to do so was to hire a caravan on one of the numerous sites which were springing up in many places. This one was Hengist Site, operated by a character of dubious provenance known as 'Captain' Smith.
The vans were far from comfortable, but it was convenient for walks along Hengistbury Head and into Christchurch.
