This is a new history of the village of Warsash (the parish of Hook with Warsash) and the surrounding district, interwoven with the maritime activities of the lower reaches of the Hamble River. It is written by local historian and resident, Bryan Woodford and covers in the main the period from 1780 to modern times. The book is profusely illustrated with photographs throughout. The written account and 190 images cover the wooden warship building era during the Napoleonic Wars, fishing boats during the crab and lobster era, industries, village inns and strawberry cultivation, the wealthy and influential people persons who visited the grand mansions, the large estates and local airfield. Warsash also played a major part in commando and naval operations during WW2, particularly in the build up to D-Day. Yachting and boatbuilding were principal activities during the 20th c. The village also hosts the well-known Warsash Maritime Academy (formerly known to generations of students as the Warsash School of Navigation, then the Warsash Maritime College), which has sent out generations of cadets and officers to serve the merchant navies of the world. Old students will find plenty of both historic and modern photographs of the college.
