Fareham Park

Hob Uid: 234188
Location :
Hampshire
Fareham
Non Civil Parish
Grid Ref : SU5500007200
Summary : Deer park - pre 1279, lodge (site of)
More information : (Area SU 550 072) Fareham Park has existed from a very
early date. In 1279, a complaint of park-breaking and
deer-stealing occurs and in 1477 there is a record of payment
for a hedge round the park. Held by the Bishop of Winchester,
the park was leased in 1541 to Sir Thom Wriothesley and
continued in that family. The timber appears to have been in
great demand for ship-building, and this is mentioned in 1538
together with report of the shortage of stags due to poaching (1).

Bounds and 'lodge' shown and described (2).

Lodge sited at 'A' SU 55000719 (3) confirmed (2). (1-3)

The bounds of Fareham Park are on the south and south-east
followed by modern roads, and on the west the R Meon formed a
natural boundary. Traces of the park pale were observed during
field investigation. The lodge mentioned in Authy 2 has been
replaced by a modern building. (4)

(SU 5531 0770 - 5542 0745) The mutilated remains of the park
pale are still visible extending for approx 270 metres in a SSE
direction from the SE corner of Iron Mill Coppice. The pale
consists of a mutilated tree-covered bank averaging 5.0m in
width and 1.2m in height with no obvious ditch(es). (5)

Now reduced to a mutilated fragment some 200.0m in length in a
copse beside a housing estate. Surveyed at 1:2500. (6)

All trace of Park Pale on SU 5507 NW destroyed. (7)

Nothing which can be positively identified as remains of the
park pale can be found. (8)
