Bursledon Office

Bursledon was for many years known for its ship building predominately for the Royal Navy and including Henry VIII’s fleet. The Elephant Boatyard still continues this tradition and specialises in the refurbishment, maintenance and custom builds of wooden sailing and motor boats. The yard and adjacent public house ‘The Jolly Sailor’ that are in the heart of the old village and located on the banks of the Hamble River, were featured in the 1980’s BBC television series ‘ Howards Way’. When the Royal Navy moved their ship building yards to Warsash, Bursledon became more known for its agricultural production, although the marine industry and water recreational pursuits such as sailing and powerboating are still very much associated with the area. There is also the annual Bursledon Regatta, run and hosted by many locals and businesses. This features sailing and rowing races, BBQ’s and evening meals, public bars and culminates in a fireworks display.

Bursledon windmill is a prominent landmark; the original mill was built in 1776 and replaced by the existing in 1814, where the internal mechanics were retained. The building fell in to a state of disrepair having been unused since the 1880s and from the late 1970s to early 1990s was refurbished. The building has recently undergone further refurbishment including the replacement of both the wooden lattices that make up its sails and the wind shaft; this was completed in November 2014.
