The old Saxon village of 'East Leah' was recorded as existing as early as 932, situated on the ancient Roman road between Winchester (Venta Belgarum) and Bitterne (Clausentum). By the mid-nineteenth century, the town was called Eastly, but, with the coming of the railway it was renamed Eastleigh - and it flourished. This stunning full-colour volume uses archive images, contrasted with modern-day photographs, to show how Eastleigh has changed over the last century. It seeks to capture the present - day town, before further change comes to the area and reshapes it forever.show more
