Longfleet is a small district of Poole, Dorset centred on Longfleet Road. It is situated directly north of the town centre and lies to the east of Oakdale and to the south and west of Parkstone.

[edit] History

The area of Longfleet was originally part of the Manor of Canford and mentioned in the Pipe Rolls of 1230. It became a parish of its own right in 1833. Longfleet is also the site of the Tatnam Well which used to provide water for the town of Poole.

[edit] Today

The vast majority of land use is for private residential dwellings, the majority being Victorian and Edwardian era terraces. However the NHS hospital Poole General covers a vast area of the district, with the main site located on the east side of Longfleet Road and the maternity unit is situated on St Marys Road, which runs north easterly from Longfleet Road. The site of the maternity unit and the adjacent private hospital was once the site of a workhouse built in 1839. It was used eventually as a wing of the maternity hospital, but was demolished in 1979.

The district is also home to The Church of Longfleet St Mary (Church of England) towards the brow of the hill, which can be seen from some miles around. Originally consecrated in 1833, the spire was added later in 1884 and additional building work carried out in 1915.

Retail outlets include a BP petrol forecourt, and small private businesses such as convenience stores and take-aways.

The local school is Longfleet Church of England VC Combined School, which moved location to a new purpose built building on Joliffe Road from Longfleet Road in the early 2000's.

The district is located in the Poole Town Ward for the purposes of local council elections for the Borough of Poole.
