Local Area

  • Cosham is a northern suburb of Portsmouth lying within the city boundary but off Portsea Island.
  • The name is of Saxon origin.  Until the 1920s it was a separate small village surrounded by fields.  Extensive suburban growth then expanded around the village, both east and west along the slopes of Portsdown Hill.
  • It has been for many years a local route centre; Cosham railway station was also the terminus for City trams and trolleybuses from the south and Portsdown and Horndean Light Railway trams to the north until 1938.
  • The high street is a significant local shopping centre.  Few traces of the original village now remain; the oldest houses (Chalk Cottage of 1777 and Mile Stone Cottages of 1793) were demolished in the 1960s and replaced by a car park but the old milepost showing mileage to London, Petersfield and Portsmouth remains.
  • There are a series of 6 forts on Portsdown Hill and these were built as a result of the 1859 Royal Commission as part of a series of fortifications built to defend Portsmouth and its dockyard from a possible attack from inland.  The main threat was perceived to be from Napoleon III of France but this receded soon after the forts’ completion.
  • The main A&E hospital, Queen Alexandra Hospital, is situated on Southwick Road in Cosham which serves the whole of Portsmouth and surrounding areas.
