Description

Town Quay, Fareham

Fareham is a market town in the south east of Hampshire, England between the cities of Southampton and Portsmouth androughly in the centre of the South Hampshire conurbation. It gives its name to the borough comprising the town and the surrounding area. To the south of the town lies Gosport itself a separate borough, to the east Portchester to the north the M27 motorway and Wickham, part of the City of Winchester. Westwards lie Titchfield, Catisfield, Locks Heath, Warsash and Whiteley which is also shared with the City of Winchester. Fareham traditionally relied on its clay soil for industry producing bricks, tiles and chimney pots. This past is commemorated through place names such as Kiln Road. The most famous example of a building constructed of 'Fareham red bricks' is probably the Royal Albert Hall, London.
