The Green, Sarisbury

Sarisbury is a village to the west of Park Gate within the borough of Fareham.[1] Its focal point, The Green, originated as a tongue of land at the extremity of Titchfield Common which was left when the rest was enclosed.[2] Its focal point is still the parish church of St Paul,[3] built in 1836 to a design by Jacob Owen. In previous times it was a rural locality dependent on fruit growing, but is now largely populated by urban workers[citation needed] who commute to Fareham, Southampton or even London from the nearby Swanwick railway station. At the 2011 Census the population of the ward was 7,385.[4]
