AUTHOR: Lesley Burton & Brian Musselwhite
The Book of Fareham
The Book of Fareham
  • Description

This is another book in the "Halsgrove Parish History" series, reminding us of the people and events that have made our communities what they are today - celebrating the past and providing a stepping stone to the future. The photographs in this unique volume, many of them previously unpublished, are a vital record of the history and inhabitants of this ancient settlement brought together from across the community.

The character of the community of Fareham and its villages has undergone many changes over the centuries. It was once an important port for shipbuilding and boat repairs, while the prominent farms in the neighbourhood contributed to its development as a market town.

During the last 50 years, the population has increased dramatically, as Fareham has extended its borough boundaries both east and west, while the old industries have dwindled away.

All this, and much more, is detailed in this 160 page book, copiously illustrated throughout with over 250 historic photographs of the places and people who have made up the thriving community of Fareham and its surrounding parish.
