Hamble Local History Talk


Many local people enjoy taking a boat trip up the river from Hamble to Botley or more likely the Horse & Jockey pub at Curbridge.

At the Hamble Local History

Society’s next meeting its Chairman, Ian Underdown, will be taking you on a trip up the river showing you the views you would have seen in 1910. Starting at the mouth of the river you will see how Hamble and Warsash looked at that time and visit the Training Ship Mercury and a Bursledon Regatta. Next up the river under the wooden toll bridge pass the Brickworks and over a Viking ship to Botley Mills.

If you live in one of the riverside villages why not come along to the Roy Underdown Pavilion on Thursday 5th April at 7.30pm to enjoy the scenes of the river over a hundred years ago?

New members and visitors are always welcomed! The cost is £2 a meeting. If you would like more information please contact our secretary, Janet Flack, telephone 8045 7189.
