The Gillies Working Group
So where does this main text appear? So where does this main text appear? So where does this main text appear? The Gillies is situated to the south of Fareham town centre, bordered to the north by the Southampton-Portsmouth railway line and the A27, to the west by the disused Fareham-Gosport railway line, and to the northeast and the south by post-war middle-density residential estates. The Black Brook flows from west to east through the site leaving the park at its eastern extremity to flow into Fareham Creek. The park contains a variety of habitats: allotment gardens, open grass, meadow, scrub, wetland, and remnants of very old, mature oak woodland. The Fareham Society holds regular work days with the Fareham Countryside Service, to carry out wildlife surveys, maintain hedges, paths and steps, and clear litter. The next work date is Sunday April 10th September at 9:30am. Please come along and help in this important work. Note: Please do not park in the allotment car park - there is usually space available in Coombe Farm Avenue.
