Warsash is situated on the eastern bank of the river Hamble, near the entrance of the river into Southampton Water, and opposite the village of Hamble. The parish is known as Hook-with-Warsash because of the links with the nearby village of Hook.

By the crossroads in the centre of the village is the clock tower, which was built as a water tower to supply Warsash House and estate with water. King Edward VII used to visit Warsash House when he was Prince of Wales. The house was pulled down and modern houses were built just before the Second World War, but the water tower and model farmhouse remain. The clock on the tower struck the ship’s bell time until an electric clock was installed in 1945.

Shipbuilding and fishing were very important occupations – crabs, lobsters and shellfish provided a living for several families. Crab teas were provided near the shore and became famous locally. The Rising Sun (where teas were once served) is still a very popular public house.

The land in this area is very stony and is ideal for growing strawberries. Twenty years ago, on a fine summer’s day, the smell of strawberries was all-pervading. The trade has been important to the area for many years, and you will still find strawberries being sold at the side of the road in season.

The College of Maritime Studies, situated where the old coastguard station used to be, has trained countless Merchant Navy seamen from all over the world. It is possible to steer one of the world’s largest oil tankers and bring it into port and never leave the college buildings, thanks to modern technology!

Very near here, a century or more ago, salt was collected from the salterns after the seawater had evaporated. Wooden posts can still be seen at low tide marking this area.
A ferry runs regularly across the river Hamble to Hamble village. Some people travel to work that way, and it is very popular with holidaymakers.

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

Window Tinting Warsash – 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.
