New Forest Accommodation - Dibden Perlieu

ABOUT Dibden Perlieu New Forest, Hampshire, UK.

Dibden Purlieu is a village situated on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire, UK. The village merges with the nearby town of Hythe.

The approximate population is around 4000 people. The regular Blue Star bus service provides Purlieu's quickest link with the city of Southampton. Dibden Purlieu is twinned with Mauves-sur-Loire, France.

Dibden Purlieu was in the parish of Dibden, referred to in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Deepdene, "dene" being an Anglo-Saxon word for valley. Purlieu is a Norman-French word meaning "the outskirts of a forest" – a place free from forest laws. In this particular case Dibden Purlieu was land removed from the New Forest in the 14th century when the forest boundaries were established by perambulations about 1300. In practice the king retained or claimed, certain rights in the area, and the activities of the royal foresters in enforcing forest law there were a matter of great resentment. Up to the 1950s Dibden Purlieu was a small settlement next to the village of Dibden, but the expansion of Fawley Refinery lead to a demand for more houses for workers, and Hythe and Dibden Purlieu were allowed to expand into a small town. In 1983 the parish was renamed, and Dibden Purlieu is now part of the parish of Hythe and Dibden.

Notable residents Richard Eurich RA OBE, was the war artist to the Admiralty from 1941.

Ron Lane was a wood sculptor of wildlife.

Dibden Purlieu has two large secondary schools; Noadswood School and Applemore Technology College. Totton College also has a small campus in the village.

The primary schools include Wildground, in Armitage Avenue (of which, the junior school opened in 1962, and the infant school two years later). Prior to that, the school had occupied temporary accommodation in Winfield Road, and had had to overspill into the Women's Institute Hall across the road..
