Uncovering the history of Havant

Take a walk through history by following the refreshed Havant Heritage Trail.

Established by the Rotary Club of Havant, Havant Borough Council and the Bosmere 100, the trail is a chance to step back in time and find out what the area used to look like.

Whether it's the Roman foundations of St Faith’s Church, the centuries old plaque at Barclay’s Passage or the ‘Battle of Havant’ at the Railway Station - there is a lot to discover.

Running through Havant town centre, each of the thirty-four historic locations is marked by a plaque to explain its history. This year the Rotary Club has cleaned some of the plaques and replaced weathered signs to give the trail a fresh look.

To follow the trail simply pick up a Havant Heritage Trail leaflet - which includes an easy to read map of the 34 locations. Leaflets are available from various places in Havant town centre and can be downloaded from the Havant Borough Council website. They have been created by the council in partnership with the Rotary Club of Havant.

The Rotary Club of Havant is active within the borough and we are pleased to have worked with them on this project.”

For more information, including details about the blue plaque locations, visit the Havant Borough Council website.
