History

Eastleigh has been tracked back to the year 932, where it was then called East Leah, which meant a clearing in the forest. In 1838 the London and Southwestern Railway Company built a railway from Southampton to Winchester. Fast forward a few years and in 1975 Fleming Park leisure centre opened, and Swan Shopping Centre was built in 1989. Today Eastleigh is full of families, professionals commuting, and the weekend shoppers!
