Locks Heath originally established itself as a community of market gardens and farms becoming famous for supplying much of the country with strawberries in the early part of the 20th century. It is surrounded by the earlier settlements of Swanwick and Titchfield. Titchfield is mentioned in Domesday as Ticefelle and had a mill, a market and a toll. Today it remains an attractive small town with a Saxon Church and the ruin of Place House, where Charles Ist spent his last night before imprisonment.
Communications are excellent with the M27 at Junction 9 less than 3 miles. Fareham is about 5 miles and Southampton 6 miles. Wickham is 7 miles and Botley 6 miles. Fast trains from Swanwick, about 2 miles, to Southampton take about 20 minutes and to London (Paddington) about an hour and 50 minutes. Southampton Airport is about seven miles.
