Trinity Street and Park Lane (Puxol Lane)

Two roads once forming a side exit out of town. As trade slowly moved west, it became more urbanised.

Trinity Street

Named after the Holy Trinity Church, the street is home to many houses which were converted to shops as the town grew, and then became mostly deserted after the shopping centre opened only to be demolished all together. One side road was originally called Bastard Place, this is now extended (on gravel) and renamed more appropriately to Russel Place. The site of Trinity Brewery was split into The Fareham pub (with its sawdust floor) and, in 1998, the Garden of Reflection, opened in memory of Princess Diana.

In 1959 the extension through to Osborn Road opened.

The chip shop by the youth centre was called Trinity Fisheries, later Jack's Chippy and then Skipper's. Other shops southwards on the same side of the road included Husseys, Jim Sandy's Driving school that used to publish their success rate in the window and Mills Fruit and veg shop.

Park Lane

Looking north on Park LanePark Lane, before the road became developed.

Across the junction with Colenso Road, the road opens up and becomes Park Lane - previously Puxol Lane, until the 1920s. Bloomfield House was cleared at the start of the 20th Century to make Northwood House, in the 1980s this was expanded in to a series of lodges and Darren Court.

In 1907 Price's School, once a gift to the town from William Price, moved to the eastern side of Park Lane for more room. With its academic reputation declining and more schools opening nearby, Price's Charity School was demolished in 1989 and went on to become William Price Gardens. On the west side, as 1960s expansion began to engulf the area, a site on the western side was left clear as a recreation ground, with several tennis courts. In the 1980s Fareham College briefly set up on the west side, which was redeveloped to become Fareham Leisure Centre.

Children from local schools were encouraged to raise money for the highly-demanded new swimming pool, but by the time it had been processed, inflation meant it could only fund a small child's pool, which still exists at the leisure centre today and used to have a plaque thanking the residents for their contribution.

The rest of the route was once a casual run across some farmland, which is where most of the livestock sold at the market were reared. Every year the circus would come here, until the leisure centre opened. Although not as dense, most of the trees which were used to separate the road from the fields and make it look more affluent. In the 1960s, the fields the road crosses were broken up and sold for large semi-detached houses, using the western end of Fareham to increase the population of south Hampshire.

Serpentine Road was one of these, initially not intended to join here, but a last-minute change to the plans saw a second exit added.

By the crossroads with North Hill is a driveway to Uplands House. The land here was partially sold off in the '60s to create the area around Miller Drive, but the house itself and its driveway survives as a carehome.
