The Western Walls & The Vaults 1.30pm

A stroll around the ancient Western walls of the City, and an exploration of the town area inland to the High Street, including at least two of the medieval vaults.

From about 1100, Southampton was a walled city, the walls being finally completed in the 1300s. Starting from the Bargate, we visit sections of the North and West walls, and many parts of the old city, including its oldest Church, St Michael’s.
Our route enables us to include many famous aspects of the city’s varied history.
Places associated with Jane Austen are visited, and the City’s Spa Period from 1750-1830 is described. The Mayflower and Speedwell departed from Southampton. Therefore important locations associated with the Pilgrim Fathers are also visited The City’s important maritime and commercial history is also described as is its role in conflicts from the Battle of Agincourt through to the Normandy Landings on D-Day. This includes a visit to the unique American Wall.

Tours depart the statues of the Lions at the north side of the Bargate, on Saturdays and Sundays at 1.30 pm from 1st October to 31st March 2018.
Cost £6, accompanied children under 16 free.

The Shadow Factory

A supporting event to “THE SHADOW FACTORY ” at Nuffield Southampton Theaters City 7TH February to 3RD March 2018. (you are NOT booking tickets for the Theater event)

WALK IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE SPITFIRE FACTORY WORKERS OF WOOLSTON!

The new play The Shadow Factory and associated exhibition at Nuffield Southampton Theatres new theatre, NST City in Guildhall Square, reminds us of the contribution of the local people of Woolston and surrounding areas in the development and production of the iconic SUPERMARINE SPITFIRE fighter.

Destruction of the Supermarine Woolston and Itchen Works between 24th and 26th September 1940 led to the establishment of the “Shadow Factories” in small premises, many locally, to produce the parts and sub components for later assembly and testing at Southampton (Eastleigh) Airfield and other locations in Hampshire, Berkshire and Wiltshire.

Many skilled craftsmen were employed in the various plants supported by a huge force of female war workers most with initially little engineering experience. Although a huge new factory was built at Castle Bromwich in the Midlands still over 8000 SPITFIRES (out of C22,000 total) mostly specialist marks were produced this way. All this activity supported by local communities “THEY ALSO SERVED”!

The Walk runs on Wednesdays and Saturdays,17th, 21st, 24th, 28th February and 3rd March 2018
The chosen route is of approx.90 minutes duration starting at 4.00 PM on Wednesdays and 10.30 AM and 4.00 PM on Saturdays at the Woolston Memorial garden SO19 district (10 metre Metal and Glass Feather, junction Victoria, Bridge and Portsmouth roads) and leaves appropriate time to travel to Studio 144 either by bus (number 3) as there is free parking in Woolston close to the start point, or by car over the Itchen Toll Bridge.

The walk taken by Geoffrey Wheeler a Southampton Green Badge Guide, Woolston Born in 1945 and resident and colleagues is arranged by SEE SOUTHAMPTON tour Guides and costs £6.00 per

Adult PAY ON THE DAY! Children and Teenagers free.
