St Mary's Church, Hale stands within the newly designated New
Forest National Park and its setting is stunning: it overlooks the
River Avon and the Charford Valley, with the Avon Valley
Footpath running alongside the church. The parish makes an
appearance in the Domesday Book of 1086, and historians
believe that a church of some kind existed at Hale at the time of
the Conquest. At that time the village of Hale was settled beside
the River Avon, then the main route between the sea at
Christchurch and the city of Salisbury.
