The Alice Lisle

Number of views as of 17th August 2014 = 1100.

Situated about a mile from the busy A338 Ringwood to Salisbury Road, the Alice Lisle is a delightful New Forest Inn, which does excellent food and has a good choice of beers & wines.

An unusual feature is the small entrance gate, which allows the customers in but keeps the New Forest ponies out!

Lady Alice Lisle (1617-1685), also known as Dame Alicia Lisle or Dame Alice Lyle was a local English gentlewoman, who was executed for harbouring fugitives from the Battle of Sedgemoor at her home at Moyles Court, near Ringwood, Hampshire.

Her trial was presided over by the infamous Judge Jeffreys at the so-called ‘Bloody Assizes’ in Winchester. She was found guilty of treason and sentenced to be burned, but her sentence was later commuted to one or mere execution!

Alice is buried in a tomb in the church of St Mary’s, Ellingham, and a plaque marks the place of her execution close to the cathedral in Winchester.

Date: 15th February 2009.

Hello and thankyou for visiting my portfolio.

The name RedHillDigital comes from the area where I live (Redhill, in the town of Bournemouth, in the county of Dorset on the South Coast of England), plus my interest in Digital photography.

My real name is Howard and I’m always pleased to receive feedback on my work.

    It looks like a lovely place to sit outside and have lunch on a hot summers day . Interesting history too.

  • It is a very popular pub Irene, even at this time of year. Not that you get many people sitting outside just now – brrr!
