Sway is a pleasant village in the New Forest National Park. The parish was formed in 1849 when 2208 acres were taken from the neighbouring parish of Boldre. Sway now has a population of 3,350 and an electorate of 2,780 (2007 figures). Lying as it does within easy walking of the open Forest and some four miles north of the Georgian town of Lymington with its boating facilities and the Solent coastline it is an attractive place to live or to visit, with travel being made easier by the award winning station on the main line from Waterloo to Weymouth. The village has maintained a good shopping centre and has two pubs, a number of restaurants and establishments providing accommodation. There is also a Church of England primary school.
