Surrounding Historical Facts
Keyhaven lies in the district of the New Forest and is just within the borders of the New Forest National Park. It is in the civil parish of Milford on Sea, and it lies at one end of the shingle bank which leads to Hurst Castle.
Hurst Castle was the perfect location to defend the western approach to the Solent. The castle was built by Henry VIII as one of a chain of coastal fortresses and was completed in 1544. Charles I was imprisoned here in 1648 before being taken to London to his trial and execution.
The castle was modernised during the Napoleonic wars and again in the 1870’s when the enormous armoured wings were constructed. Two of the huge 38-ton guns installed in the 1870’s can be viewed in their casemates.
During World War II, Hurst was manned with coastal gun batteries and searchlights.

Learning through action - every program we deliver is highly practical and addresses real live issues. We use simulations, exercises and case studies and all our methods are based on the latest neuroscience and positive psychology research findings. Everything we deliver and challenge our participants to think about leads back to one simple question “what am I going to do differently back at work and how?”.
