Wells Place

The creation of a flexible space where specialist markets and street performances could be located was conceived as part of the Eastleigh street furniture refurbishment completed in 2013.

Unfortunately the project is currently delayed due to scaffolding supporting a dangerous structure encroaching on the site.   We will resume works as soon as we can.
