THE LOCAL AREA Hamble-Le-Rice is a picturesque Village situated on the South Coast of England, renowned for the local sailing facilities, Marinas, Sailing Clubs, eating and drinking establishments and beautiful Riverside walks. Whilst the village has retained its character, the surrounding area has grown to support three marinas and a host of shops, pubs and restaurants, services and businesses. There are woodland and coastal walks to enjoy, two country parks are situated nearby; The Royal Victoria Country Park and Manor Farm Country Park.Hamble's geographical position has contributed greatly to the village's history and its importance as there are many old wells in the area suggesting a good supply of fresh water, making the village the maritime centre over many centuries. One of these original wells is in the garden of The Old House. There have been a number of notable houses built in Hamble, however not many of them remain. The Old House is believed to be built in the 17th Century and stands on the village Square with views over the Square and down The Quay. The community benefits from local junior and senior schools, children’s clubs, Hamble Parish Council, Hamble River Singers and the mobile library to name a few.
