The Local Area Guide to living in Mudeford

A petite fishing village in the borough of Christchurch, Dorset, Mudeford sits at the point where the River Mude and Bure Brook flow into the harbour. This once tiny village has expanded rapidly in recent years, with the boundaries growing to include a number of modern housing developments. Yet it retains a strong traditional atmosphere, with quaint tea and chip shops lining the harbour and historic buildings like the All Saints Church dating back to 1869.

Mudeford's storied history includes many tales of smuggling over the centuries and its well-preserved traditional quay has long been the epicentre of the local fishing industry. With Christchurch Harbour to one side and the open sea to the other, the quay also lends itself well to sailing and windsurfing. Mudeford is a top destination for sailing regattas and maritime festivities, particularly in the summer months. Mudeford Woods and Peregrine Woods also sit in the area, providing ample opportunity for woodland walks and birdwatching, while a recreation ground is available for leisurely games of cricket.

Information about the local residents

Once a sleepy fishing village, now approximately 4000 residents call Mudeford home, according to the most recent Census data. Many are professionals who make the commute into neighbouring Christchurch or Bournemouth, but there is also a high population of elderly residents. When looking at Mudeford and Highcliffe combined, this electoral division has the highest proportion of old people in the County, with nearly 48% over the age of 65. There is also a high percentage of secondary or holiday homes in Mudeford, with many families choosing to spend their summers in this picturesque coastal community. Yet with the recent construction of new housing stock, more young families have moved into the area as permanent residents.
