Wells Place Eastleigh

Looking along Wells Place from the Market Street entrance to the Swan Centre, June 2006. The Swan Centre shopping mall has had the biggest single influence on the town centre over the last twenty years, and is set to expand over the next few years, to include a multiplex cinema, bowling and restaurants.

Swan Centre Eastleigh

One of the attractive malls within the Swan Centre. This one roughly follows the line of the part of Market street demolished for the 1974 Tesco store, which itself was incorperated into the Swan Centre. Photographed June 2006.

Two photographs, above and below of Market Street looking north from the junction with Wells Place. June 2006. Notice the covered promenade on the left hand side of the street, this extends the length of Market St, Leigh Rd precinct and High St, making it possible to shop in the dry in inclement weather. The old fashioned pull out canopies, a trade mark of old time Eastleigh have now all but disappeared.

Eastleigh doesn't stand still. This is the Junction of Blenheim Rd and Southampton Rd, June 2006. The building work is for a new block of flats, and is on the site of the now demolished Unity Club / Breezers night club, which itself was built on the old bus station site during the 1980's.

Remember this chap ?

Yes he was for many years the central display in the old Sub Aqua shop in Twyford Rd, sadly now closed, this photo was probably taken in the early years of the new millenium.
