Discovering the Charm of Fairfields: A Historical Gem in the Town Centre

Nestled within the vibrant Town Centre, Fairfields is a historic area rich with stories and significance. The house we are selling is uniquely positioned on the corner of Cliddesden Road and Beaconsfield Road, offering a glimpse into the past while providing modern comforts.

A Glimpse into Fairfields History

2 Cliddesden Road Basingstoke

Fairfields School, a cornerstone of this community, was established in 1888 as a Board school following the introduction of compulsory elementary education. The school stands as a testament to the area’s commitment to education and development.

The land surrounding the school, where Jubilee Road and Beaconsfield Road are located today, began its transformation around 1887. Originally known as Jubilee Field, later Jubilee Meadow, it derived its name from the Jubilee of George III in 1809, commemorating 50 years of his reign.

The Legacy of Beaconsfield Road

Beaconsfield Road began its development around 1887, likely named in honor of the Earl of Beaconsfield, Benjamin Disraeli, a prominent 19th-century politician who passed away in 1881. This road has witnessed over a century of history, evolving with the times while retaining its historical significance.

Cliddesden Road: A Path Through Time

Cliddesden Road, developed in the 1890s, carries its own historical narrative. In the 1980s, it was blocked for through traffic, preserving its tranquillity and charm. This road has seen significant events, including a dramatic moment during World War II. On 24 October 1940, a bomb landed close to St Vincent’s School on Cliddesden Road. Fortunately, the school children were safely away, enjoying a walk in the War Memorial Park.

The Perfect Blend of History and Modernity

The house on the corner of Cliddesden Road and Beaconsfield Road offers more than just a place to live; it provides a connection to the rich tapestry of Fairfields’ history. Living here means being part of a community that values its heritage while looking forward to the future.
