Pictures of Havant
Interestingly, this town provided the Parchment on which the treaty of Versailles was written in 1919. Havant had a parchment making industry until well into the mid-twentieth century when it fell into decline. Havant has been a major junction since roman times and the remains of a roman villa were discovered close to the town in 1928. Always a prosperous area, these days, the waters around Havant are thronged with colourful sailing and pleasure boats. Lying as it does, in close proximity to both Southampton and Portsmouth, makes Havant an ideal centre for sailing and the manufacture of sailing craft.

Did you know? Lincoln Cathedral was once officially the tallest building in the world for over 200 years, from 1311 (when the central tower was raised, surpassing the Great Pyramid of Giza which had held the record for almost 4000 years), until 1549 when the spire was blown down in a storm.
