The changing map of St Denys

I was brought up in St Denys, an area of Southampton. After the Second World War prefabs were constructed that would become my home for over a decade. Sometime after 1976 the prefabs were demolished, as was the adjacent paint factory, and modern houses were built. The following 4 maps show how the area has changed.

  1. They should have kept the drive and close and built
    the houses around so that the access to the river stayed the same .

    1. I take your point. It was a rather splendid layout. We had great fun there as kids. Now, on the rare occasions I get down there, I’m always in awe of the view of the rail embankment and bridge and of across the river. Happy days!

Have your say!
