Choose a building or location that has been demolished or redeveloped - currently there are 127 locations you can visit

Did you know that in the last hundred years or so more than 100 different locations in Farnborough have been demolished for 'redevelopment' and 'improvement'?

The legacy of these buildings and locations is largely lost unless you look for the signs of Farnborough's history. Many of these redevelopments have been made to make room for more housing as in the case of Tile Barn House being pulled down to build Tile Barn Close; to make room for education at the technical college Castleden Hall was demolished; and in the name of greater commerce the old Post Office building and Jubilee hall made way for offices on Farnborough Road.
