Fleet is a bustling town located in the Hart district of Hampshire, just 37 miles from London. With an abundance of amenities, fantastic transport links and plenty of open green spaces, Fleet is the perfect location for both commuters and families alike.

History of Fleet

Fleet was once an uninhabited heathland used for grazing animals and collecting peat to use as fuel. The famous Fleet Pond was also used as a source of fish for the Bishops of Winchester for many years. This rural way of life continued uninterrupted by the opening of the Basingstoke Canal in the late 1700s, until 1829 when an Enclosure Act was passed.

Once the act had passed the poor lost their rights to the common and by the mid-1830s the land had been allocated out to those who already owned surrounding land. At this point the development of the town began, with approximately 20 homes built by 1839. The town continued to grow and in 1838 the railway line through Fleet was opened, with a platform created years later in 1847. The Oat Sheaf public house, which still remains today, was also first licenced in 1838 and the All Saints Church was built in 1861.

In 1878, Henry Brake purchased 457 acres of the enclosed land and created prominent roads in the town, such as Albert Street, Connaught Road, Clarence Road and Victoria Road. Thousands of building plots were put up for sale and Brake’s son operated from an office on Fleet Road.

From 1871 to 1901, Fleet’s population increased by over 400% from 380 to 2000 residents. Wealthy Londoners built large estates in the area and army officers retired in the town. Many local businesses were also set up, with tobacco grown commercially on the Redfields estate for 25 years and County Commercial Cars founding their firm in Fleet in 1929.

Post World War I, larger estates such as Basingbourne, Courtmoor and Dinorben were sold on to be used for housing. Agricultural land at Ancells Farm, Zebon Copse and heathland at Elvetham were also developed, with many property owners selling parts of their gardens.
