Hamble Local History Society
Warsash and the River
7th February 2019 - 7.30pm. Roy Underdown Pavilion.
Warsash local historian and author, Bryan Woodford, will be giving an illustrated talk about the important aspects of the village's riverside activities over the past centuries.
In the early 1800s its men were building Royal Naval ships and later working in the crab & lobster trade. The coastguard was based at Warsash and its cottages became part of the School of Navigation. During the Second World War HMS Tormentor played an important role particularly during D-Day. These are just a few of the riverside activities that Bryan will recall and the ferry and Warsash Sailing Club will not be missed out.
Why not come along and find out what was happening over the years at Hamble's neighbouring village on the opposite side of the river?
New members and visitors are always welcomed! The cost is £2 a meeting.
