About Havant

Havant is a town in south east Hampshire on the South coast of England, between Portsmouth and Chichester It has good railway connections to London, Portsmouth and Brighton, being served by Havant railway station. The A27 road runs past its Southern side, beyond which lies Langstone, and then Hayling Island. To the north lies Leigh Park, and beyond that Staunton Country Park and Rowlands Castle. To the east is Emsworth, another small town, whilst to the west lies Bedhampton and Portsdown Hill. The A3(M) motorway passes to the west.

The old centre of the town dates from Roman times, but the town has grown a lot since World War II, currently forming a conurbation with Langstone, Bedhampton, Leigh Park, Denvilles and Warblington. There are several natural springs in the area, including one a short distance South-west of the church on West Street at the end of Homewell The main shopping centre is called Meridian Shopping, as well as a pedestrianised section of West Street.

Much of Havant was destroyed by fire in 1760, leaving only the church and the adjacent late 16th or early 17th century cottages. The cottages are now known collectively as "The Old House at Home", and are now used as a pub. It is claimed that the two main beams in the lounge bar were recovered from the Spanish Armada, and that the "Bear Post" within once had the last dancing bear in England tethered to it. The oldest undisturbed part of St Faiths church date from the early 13th century; some of the foundations however are believed to date from Roman times

Havant also has one of the more favoured colleges within the Portsmouth district, Havant College, located just to the north of the town centre.
