Today it appears Milford on Sea attracts and inspires many artist who record the beautiful area we  are so fortunate to live in.

If you would like to see their work, then you can meet many of them when The Hampshire Open Studios runs, once again, from Saturday August 20th through to Bank Holiday Monday 29th August 2016.
