About The Horndean Area

Horndean began as a little Saxon village. Its name may be a corruption of Saxon words Hearman denu meaning dormouse valley. Horndean stood in a great forest that stretched from the border of Hampshire to Winchester. It was called the Forest of Bere.

A brewing industry existed at Horndean from the 1720's. In Horndean Merchistoun Hall was built in the late 18th century. It was originally called The Grove. In 1836 it was bought by Admiral Charles Napier who renamed it after his birthplace Merchiston Hall in Scotland (with a change in spelling). He was an eccentric character who used to walk around Horndean with a pet monkey on his shoulder.

Gales Ales was founded in Horndean in 1847. The brewery burned down in 1869 but was quickly rebuilt.

In 1920 a War Memorial was erected in Horndean. Meanwhile from the end of the 19th century a horse drawn bus ran between Portsmouth and Waterlooville. In 1903 a tram called the Horndean Light Railway began running between the city and Horndean. The trams were called the green cars because they were emerald green and cream. For many Portsmouth people travelling to Horndean for a day in the summer was a big treat. The light railway closed in 1935 and was replaced by buses.

In 1932 Horndean was given a parish council in recognition of the fact that the area was growing rapidly.

A fire station was built in Horndean in 1939. During World War II many people from Portsmouth came to Waterlooville and Horndean each night to escape the bombing. They slept in sheds and garages and in temporary shacks.

The year 2006 marked the end of an era for Horndean. In March the brewery closed. In 2011 it was decided to demolish Horndean brewery and replace it with houses and shops.
