South Ham, Hampshire

South Ham is a district and ward of Basingstoke, to the west of the town centre. It takes its name from South Ham Farm, which was once the major farm in the area but was demolished in the early 1960s. Parts of the area were developed for Council Housing in both the 1930s and 1950s when Western Way, one of the principal roads was built. The majority of development took place in the late 1960s, when the Basingstoke was developed as an overspill town for London.
