Sandy Balls


Recommended Posts

It's a typical New Forest road, undulating, often with a large number of cows, horses and donkeys, along with cyclists in the evenings and weekends. The road narrows near to the entrance of Sandy Balls if I recall. However just take your time and watch for wide oncoming traffic and you'll be fine.


You are right in avoiding Ringwood and the road up to Fordingbridge. When the M27 becomes the A31 and loses a lane there can be a long tailback, particularly on Friday afternoons / evenings and at the weekends.


I'm fortunate to live just across the border in Dorset and it is a wonderful area.

Hi i,ve taken my m/home along the 3078 no problems apart from giving way occasionally, better than the jams between Picket post & Ringwood.


To all there are signs up on the A31 for road closures 10.00p.m to 6a.m. between 18/8 to 3/9.
