East Boldre was formed as a separate Civil Parish in 1929 from the Parish of Boldre. It has over thirty Bronze Age barrows within its boundaries, most of which - in common with others in the New Forest - have been investigated. In this Parish is Hatchet Pond, a forest haunt for tourist and naturalist alike. During the last war there was an airfield here.
