From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
North Stoneham is a settlement and ecclesiastical parish located in between Eastleigh and Southampton in south Hampshire, England. It was formerly an ancient estate and manor. Until the nineteenth century, it was a rural community comprising a number of scattered hamlets, including Middle Stoneham, North End, and Bassett Green, and characterised by large areas of woodland. The former 1,000-acre North Stoneham Park was redesigned by Capability Brown in the eighteenth century, and was one of the largest ornamental parklands in Hampshire.
