Ancient parkland that’s being bought back to life as a new vibrant community

North Stoneham Park is steeped in a rich history that dates back to its roots as a Saxon estate in the Middle Ages. Later, in the sixteenth century, it became the seat of the Willis Fleming family who built North Stoneham House, a magnificent mansion in the grounds of the vast deer park and parklands.  Two hundred years later, the grounds were redesigned by the renowned English landscape architect, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.

North Stoneham Park was originally a Deer Park

 Today, this ancient parkland is being bought back to life in the form of a vibrant new community that will provide homes, sporting and leisure facilities, a school, nursery, office building and retail centre, all set among lush green open spaces for everyone to enjoy.

A green infrastructure, ecologically sensitive habitats and historic areas will feature throughout the new development.

The land comprises some 120 acres positioned on the outskirts of Eastleigh and, thanks to a carefully considered design scheme, a green infrastructure, ecologically sensitive habitats and historic areas will remain protected and feature throughout the new development. This includes the ancient parkland avenue that sits at the centre of the site and will be enhanced for the benefit of everyone to enjoy.

The landscaped grounds will link all areas of the Park, including its beautiful open spaces and historic areas, by defined footpaths.

North Stoneham Park is just one of the distinctive landscapes created by Capability Brown – the name behind some of the enduring and distinctive estates in England. In the eighteenth century he made his mark on vast country mansions where he constructed elegant gardens, parklands, woodlands, lakes and serpentine rivers, which all flowed seamlessly to create enchanting grounds that continue to captivate landscape architects and gardeners today.
