Twyford Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Hampshire and New Forest...

An attractive village on the banks of the River Itchen a few miles from Winchester, Twyford hit the headlines in the 1990's when environmental groups vainly tried to prevent a bypass being cut through picturesque Twyford Down.

Much earlier it achieved fame of a different kind when Benjamin Franklin wrote parts of his autobiography at Twyford House.

Nearby Marwell Zoo has a reputation for protecting endangered animals.
