Voices of Eastleigh draws together memories of life in this former railway town turned commuter location from a wide range of people. How do residents view their past, present and future? Has life in Eastleigh been good to them? What was it like to live in a railway cottage where everyone knew and helped each other? What is it like to live in a modern apartment in Benny Hill Close?
Glen Jayson compares nostalgic anecdotes from a centenarian resident to a child's view of the future. Read how working at Pirelli or Kipling was once a part of community life.
The stories recalled here will rekindle memories for anyone who has lived in this area for more than a few years, and will be an eye-opener for any new arrivals who want to find out more about the history of Eastleigh. The book is illustrated with a wonderful selection of photographs that capture the spirit of this unique area over the past hundred years or so.
