Brook and Bramshaw are two villages situated just inside the New Forest, about eight miles west of Southampton. The villages have changed considerably over the last few years, with the M27 motorway just one and a half miles away. However, the area has certainly not lost its charm and the New Forest ponies still walk along the roads and graze the verges and commons. It is not only ponies that have to be avoided by passing motorists but cows, donkeys, pigs and occasionally deer.

There is still the old forge building in Bramshaw. This has a long history and the cottage adjoining is dated 1793, with the initials ‘W .H.’ .William Henbest placed an advertisement in the Salisbury and Winchester Journal on 1st September 1794, respectfully informing the public in general ‘that he has erected a Foundery to cast iron of every sort’. In 1813 he made numerous cast iron safes for local churches at ?3 13s 6d each. There is one in Salisbury Cathedral, embossed with the initials ‘W.H.’ and ‘Bramshaw Foundery’.

Great attractions in the area are the two golf courses. One is over the open forest with spectacular views, but here the players have the added handicap of the ponies wandering on and off the greens. The main course is the venue for several tournaments, and the complex includes an hotel.

On the outskirts of Brook is the famous Rufus Stone. In August 1100 William Rufus, King William II of England, was shot dead by an arrow whilst he was out hunting in the Forest. The stone marks the spot where William Rufus died. Was it an accident, or was it murder by the hand of the French nobleman Walter Tyrell? The mystery remains to this day. Very near to the stone is the public house called the Sir Walter Tyrell.

The village information above is taken from The Hampshire Village Book, written by members of Hampshire Federation of Women’s Institutes and published by Countryside Books. 

Window Tinting Brook & Bramshaw – Southampton

Professionally installed window tinting films improve:

Passenger Comfort

Our automotive window films filter up to 65% of the sun’s heat, reducing interior vehicle temperature. Long journeys are more enjoyable – when parked up your vehicle will stay cool for longer. You can also save a decent amount on air conditioning/fuel costs.

Less Glare & Fatigue

Window tinting reduces up to 95% of unwanted glare within the vehicle’s interior and helps take the strain out of driving. Sun strips on the front windscreen should also be considered, especially in the winter to spring months, whilst the sun is low on the horizon.

UV Ray Protection

Automotive window films screen out up to 99 % of the sun’s invisible UV radiation, a principal cause of skin cancer and premature skin aging.

Reduce Interior Fading

Solar heat and UV rays can cause interior plastic trim cracks and fading of upholstery/carpeting. Using window tints helps keep your vehicle looking new.

There’s no extra charge for the various film choices, as our prices are based on the complexity of the installation, which varies from vehicle to vehicle.
You are more than welcome to call or email us for a no-obligation chat about the various options. We can also look to evaluate your car at our workshop and discuss the best choices. We use only the best quality professional films with a 5-year Guarantee.
