Fareham

Fareham is a market town at the north-west tip of Portsmouth Harbour, between the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton in the south east of Hampshire, England. It gives its name to the borough which comprises the town and its surrounding area. Fareham was historically an important manufacturer of bricks (which were notably used to build the Royal Albert Hall, London) and a grower of strawberries. Current employment includes retail (including a shopping centre with around 100 shops), small-scale manufacturing, and defence (with the Royal Navy's HMS Collingwood and the Ministry of Defence's Dstl nearby).
