History

Part of The Medieval Walls

Although Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age settlements are known to have existed in the area,[10] the first permanent settlement was established by the Romans shortly after their invasion of Britain in AD 43.[11] Known as Clausentum, it was an important trading port for the large Roman towns of Winchester and Salisbury. The Romans abandoned the settlement circa 410[12], and the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons eventually saw the formation of a new settlement circa 700 across the Itchen centred around what is now the St Mary's area. The settlement was known as Hamwic,[13] which evolved into Hamtun and then Hampton.[14] A road map of Southampton from 1948 The Cenotaph The medieval city wall Southampton High Street in 1839. ...

Hamwic fell into decline in the 9th century,[17] but there is evidence that by the 10th century, a new settlement, which became Medieval Southampton had already been established[18] following the Norman Conquest in 1066. Southampton became the major port of transit between Winchester (then the capital of England) and Normandy. By the 13th century, Southampton had become a leading port, and was particularly involved in the trade of French Wine[19] in exchange for English cloth and wool.[20] The Wool House was built in 1417 as a warehouse for the medieval wool trade with Flanders and Italy, the building surviving today as the Maritime Museum. During the Middle Ages, shipbuilding became an increasingly important industry, which was to remain for centuries to come.

The town was sacked in 1338 by the French, including the pirate Grimaldi, who used the plunder to help found the principality of Monaco.[21] After this attack, the city's walls - part of which dates from 1175[22] - were extensively added to and reinforced.[23] A large part of the town's walls remain today.[24] Lacking proper finance for the construction of a full defensive wall, the townsfolk reached a compromise solution, which involved joining the existing exterior walls of existing merchant houses together to form part of the defensive structure. The city walls include God's House Tower, built in 1417, the first purpose-built artillery fortification in England.[25] Over the years it has been used as home to the city's gunner, the Town Gaol and even as storage for the Southampton Harbour Board.[26] Today, it is open as the Museum of Archaeology.

When it was unveiled on 6 November 1920, it was 1800 names, later raised to 2008. The Second World War hit Southampton particularly hard because of its strategic importance as the major industrial area on the South Coast. In particular, the Supermarine Spitfire fighter aircraft was invented and manufactured in Southampton, a result of 1930s experimentation in the city. Bombing in two days in September 1940 killed 130 workers at the Woolston aircraft factory. There were many aircraft companies based around Hamble, to the east of the city, from the 1930s to 1950s, including Folland Aviation, now part of British Aerospace, which built the Hawk and Harrier. BOAC had a flying boat base in the docks serving British colonial possessions in Africa and Asia in the 1930s and 1940s. It closed in 1950 when land based aircraft became dominant.

Pockets of Georgian architecture survived the war, but much of the city was levelled. The accuracy of the locally-based Ordnance Survey's maps did not go unrecognised by the Luftwaffe: the German bomber pilots used them to bomb Southampton.[33] One notable building to survive the bombings was Southampton's oldest, St. Michaels Church. Thought to have been commenced in 1070,[34] the building has been added to many times over the centuries but its central tower dates from Norman times. The spire was an important navigation aid for the German pilots and consequently they were ordered to avoid bombing it.[35] Part of an Ordnance Survey map at 1 inch to the mile scale from 1945 Ordnance Survey (OS) is an executive agency of the United Kingdom government. ...

Government

Southampton used to be a County Borough within the county of Hampshire, which in the past was known as the County of Southampton[37] or Southamptonshire.[38] This was officially changed to Hampshire in 1959 although the county had been commonly known as Hampshire or Hantscire for centuries. Southampton became a non-metropolitan district in 1974. However, the city became independent administratively from that county as it was made into a unitary authority in a local government re-organisation on 1 April 1997 - a result of the 1992 Local Government Act. The district remains part of the Hampshire ceremonial county.

Geography and climate

The geography of Southampton is very much influenced by the sea and rivers. The city sits at the northern tip of the Southampton Water, a deepwater estuary, which is a ria formed at the end of the last Ice Age. Here, the rivers Test and Itchen converge.[39] The Test - which has saltmarsh that make it ideal for Salmon fishing[40] - runs along the Western edge of the city, while the Itchen splits Southampton in two - east and west.

Much of the Waterfront has been reclaimed over the years, mainly for use as the Western Docks.[41] Most of the land used for reclamation came from dredging of Southampton Water,[42] to ensure that the port can continue to handle some of the largest ships in the world. The shape of the coastline gives rise to a natural phenomena in Southampton, known as the double tide.[43] This gives the port a much longer high tide period than other ports, making the movement of large ships easier.[44][45]


The city itself lies in the Hampshire Basin, which sits atop large amounts of chalk beds.[46]

There are two main termini for bus services. As the biggest operator, First uses stops around Pound Tree Road, and occupy a lot of space there. This leaves the other terminal of West Quay available for other operators. Uni-link passes West Quay in both directions, and Wilts and Dorset drop passengers off and pick them up there, terminating at a series of bus stands along the road. Certain Bluestar services also do this, while others stop at Bargate and some loop round West Quay, stopping between Bargate and Pound tree Road. There was a tram system from 1879 to 1949.

Southampton used to be home to a number of ferry services to the continent, with destinations such as San Sebastian, Lisbon, Tangier and Casablanca. A ferry port was built during the 1960s.[94] However a number of these relocated to Portsmouth and by 1996, there were no longer any car ferries operating from Southampton with the exception of services to the Isle of Wight. The land used for Southampton Ferry Port was sold off and a retail and housing development was built on the site. The Princess Alexandra Dock was converted into a Marina. Now the new Ian Harold Brown car reception area fills the Eastern Docks where passengers, dry docks and trains used to be.
