How and when Poole was Built.

The town has been trading and inhabited since ancient times. Poole has been described as Britain’s oldest known cross channel port. This was an active port 200 years before the Romans invaded in AD 43. Poole today is one of the largest towns along the south coast and still has a busy cross channel port and many new marinas for yachtsman. Modern Poole is made up of numerous villages which were absorbed into the town as it grew out and away from Poole centre such as Upper Parkstone, Lower Parkstone, Alderney, Corfe Mullen, Broadstone, Hamworthy, Penn Hill, Salterns and Newtown. In the 18th century Poole was still dominated by the Newfoundland trade. Ships went to fish off the coast there. Some of the first settlers in Newfoundland came from Poole. In the 19th century the old Newfoundland trade came to an end. When the war with France ended in 1815 fishermen from the town were suddenly faced with competition from other nations. Furthermore some countries imposed import duties on dried fish to help their own fishermen. The result was the death of the Newfoundland trade in Poole. As it grew its amenities improved and a new Customs House was built in Poole in 1813. A Harbour Office was built in 1820. St James Church was also built in 1820. In 1859 a private water company was founded to supply Poole with water the council took over the company in 1906. However no sewers were dug till the end of the 19th century. Areas like Parkstone expanded heavily from the 1880 Victorian building boom with many early roads like Albert Road Parkstone dating back to the early 1880’s were just gravel tracks. This expansion of this area of Poole, which at this time was mainly heathland with only cart tracks as highways between Wallisdown and Parkstone now we have Alder Road. It is not certain why Lilliput has that name. Lilliput was the name of a land in the novel Gulliver’s Travels. According to some accounts there was a house called Lilliput House in the early 19th century (the first resident had the surname Gulliver) and the house gave the area its name. During the mid-20th century it suffered from high unemployment and poverty but the period after WW2 saw a period of industrial growth in the town. This brought in a large number of companies looking to invest and relocate. This caused a building boom which created over 10,000 new homes between 1946 and 1966. This boom created the new council estates known as Bourne, Trinidad, Alderney and Turlin Moor. Also during this time there was a slump clearance programme initiative in the town because much of the old ancient town was damp rodent infested slums. Over 1000 houses and building were demolished and there inhabitants moved to the new estates. Unfortunately many of the towns historic buildings were also demolished particularly in the old town. In 1975 a conservation area was created to preserve the remaining buildings.

Damp Proof Course Problems in Poole Properties

Damp Proofing Poole this property in Parksone was built in 1880 Prior to and during the building boom of 1880 in Poole many properties were constructed with no planning restrictions and were built by individual tradesman and to different standards. The problem of rising damp through the floor should have been entirely eradicated with introduction of suspended wooden floors which started to be introduced in the late Victorian period. The difficulty can be that some have been laid on sleeper walls without a DPC. And others the floor joists are built into the wall, either below DPC or on internal walls where no DPC was ever installed originally. This has caused many common problems to appear from the ground up such as penetrating damp, wet rot, dry rot and an increase need for woodworm treatments.

Where Local Poole Materials Came From?

The earliest brick works in the area was at Foxholes in Newtown around 1755 the first pit was established in the area in 1852 and the Bourne Valley Potteries were established a year later in 1853.There was a great demand for bricks in those days for the building of the massive viaducts at Branksome along with new roads and bridges for the new southern railways. Other local workings were; The Arne clay works which is on the Arne headland in the western part of Poole Harbour. There was old clay pits at Beacon Hill that were used to extract white china clay for export. Corfe Mullen has had its own pit which opened in 1780 at Red Lane which is now the council land waste centre. The Sharpe, Jones & Company opens the Bourne Valley Potteries in 1853

Poole Railways

Poole did not have a railway until 1872 and relied on Hamworthy station in 1847 when the railway first came to Dorset. In 1874 the railway was extended to Bournemouth which helped it to expand rapidly as it grew into a seaside resort Poole supplied building material from around the world to help with the 1880 Victorian housing boom.
