9-11 West St, Fareham, Hampshire, PO16 0BG
Chapplins of Fareham is very much a family business, as it is owned and run by husband and wife team, Clive Bryant and Beverley Green. The original branch opened in 2002 and was at No 1 High Street Fareham. This was an excellent location but significant business growth meant that much larger premises were required. A double fronted office was identified and after a significant cash investment, the new highly contemporary Chapplins Fareham office was opened in May 2013. This office is one of the largest in Fareham and unusually offers a true 7 day a week service in both the sales and lettings sector. This office enjoys a very high footfall and has proven extremely convenient for its customers.
We manage over 350 properties and are proud to highlight that we are an ARLA licensed office. In addition we have offices available for customers requiring a more discreet and private conversation. Naturally we are able to offer mortgage advice and information about conveyancing services. This branch is also a member of the team multi- listing organization. Chapplins Estate Agents have additional offices in Havant Waterlooville, Liss and Bordon.

The 2001 Census found Fareham to have lower than average unemployment and crime with house prices higher than average. The population of the borough was estimated at about 111,000 with an average age of 40.3 years.
Archaeological excavations around the old High street area, and the church of St Peter & Paul, on high ground over the Wallington Estuary, have yielded evidence of settlement on the site contemporary with the Roman occupation. However, no extensive programme of investigation has been possible, due to the historic nature of the buildings in this area.
The town has a recognised and documented history dating back to the Norman era. Originally known by the name of Ferneham By the beginning of the 20th century, Fareham had developed into a major market town.
Fareham is now at a stage of maturity as a town. As a place to live, it is increasingly popular, with good schools (The Henry Cort Community College, Neville Lovett Community School, and Cams Hill School), plentiful housing, and more open space than can be found in the neighbouring cities. Fareham is well served by the major road and rail networks. The M27 motorway passes around the northern edge of Fareham, and is the main traffic artery into and out of the area. It provides easy access to both Portsmouth and Southampton, and from there to London via the M3 and A3(M). Fareham railway station is on the West Coastway Line, with regular fast services to Portsmouth, Southampton, Bournemouth, Cardiff and London.
Public transport in the town is provided by First Bus, who run nearly all bus routes in the area. Services run as far as Winchester. The main bus station is adjacent to the Market Quay development, and replaced an older station that was demolished in the late 1980s.
