A little bit of history
Mudeford is a former small fishing village that is now a suburb of the borough of Christchurch, Dorset, England, lying at the entrance to Christchurch Harbour. The River Mude (which starts from Poors Common in Bransgore, Hampshire and Bure Brook (which starts from Nea Meadows in Highcliffe, Dorset) flow into the harbour there. In recent times, the boundaries of Mudeford have expanded and include modern housing. Approximately 4,000 people now live in the area, giving a population density of roughly 24 persons per hectare.
Mudeford is a great location to buy fresh fish and seafood from the Quay. Nearby Christchurch and Southbourne have a multitude of boutiques and eateries. The local supermarkets are Marks and Spencers and Waitrose. If you prefer having everythiong under one roof, Castlepoint is a 15 minute car ride away and further afield in Southampton, you will find the very popular West Quay.
