Steve Brine MP

for Winchester & Chandler's Ford

Alresford is a beautiful Georgian market Town situated a few miles from the city of Winchester.  For many centuries it was a prosperous wool town. Old Alresford is mentioned in the Domesday Book but the present town of New Alresford did not come into existence much before 1200 at the time when the Great Weir was being built to create Old Alresford Pond as a reservoir for the Mills along the Itchen. The colour-washed Georgian houses we see today rose from the ashes of great fires in the 17th Century.

Now the home of the Watercress Line steam railway, so called because of its association with watercress farming, in what is now known as the UKs capital of watercress. The town hosts the annual Watercress Festival in May.

These pages cover the work of Steve Brine MP across New Alresford and surrounding villages including; Old Alresford, Bighton, Northington and Gundleton.

Pictured; Steve holds a regular street surgery in Alresford with local city and town councillors.  Here he is, with Cllr Ernie Jeffs and Popcorn, chatting with shoppers in Broad Street.
