The Hamble rises at Bishop's Waltham in Hampshire and flows for 12 miles towards Southampton Water. This guide narrates its varied history as a means of transport for local goods, a home for the royal fleet, a place of naval shipbuilding, a military resource and a centre for yachting, among other uses. The text traces the river from source to sea, with many illustrations, maps and archive photographs.
