Denvilles is a locality within Havant to the north of Warblington railway station.[1] In 1877 it consisted of a solitary farm[2] but by 1897 there were several roads of detached residencies.[3] Slowly the area grew, and in the 1960s it doubled in size as smaller housing estates for private ownership were built.[4] The area has a small convenience store but the adjoining satellite health centre moved in July to centralised premises elsewhere.[5] Despite this the Borough Council[6] designates the area UA2 not a priority for extra investment.[7])
