Cams Estate

History

For centuries this was one of Fareham's most stately residences, with a manor house recorded at Cams Hall as far back as the 13th century. In 1781, a new building on the estate was bought by the Delme family who moved from Place House (now Titchfield Abbey) to live in the mansion. They spent a small fortune part-rebuilding and enlarging it into a superb mansion, known as Cams Hall, and it remained in the family for more than 100 years. The estate has a superb setting and outstanding views to Portsmouth Harbour. When the family's male heirs died out, the estate was bought by Montague Foster who rented it to a number of tenants. It was sold again in 1895 and had several owners, as well as being used by the Admiralty during World War II. During the 1950's a caravan park was developed and the Hill family farmed the land. The buildings and house fell into disrepair. When a new owner was killed in a plane crash, Strand Harbour Securities took over the estate and renovated it.

Today

Cams Estate is a successful business park set in the stunning surroundings of a golf course. The park's centrepiece is the renovated Cams Mansion and adjoining Home Farm buildings complex that have been converted to office use. New office buildings have been completed at Delme Place and Carnac Court. Business occupiers include a range of high-tech businesses, including Serverhouse, which is in the process of developing 'Teleport T1' to house satellite communications dishes, receiving and transmitting TV, data and video world-wide. The development and the fibre-optic superhighways that serve it put Fareham on the global telecommunications map and provide an enhanced business future for the Cams Estate. We have also developed a successful small business centre on the estate.
