“Southampton Common is a large open space to the north of the city centre of Southampton, England. It is bounded by the districts of Shirley, Bassett, Highfield and Portswood. The area supports a large variety of wildlife, including the largest recorded population of the internationally rare great crested newt. It is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Southampton Common currently includes 365 acres (1.48 km2)[1] of woodland, parkland, rough grassland, ponds, wetlands, nature trails, a paddling pool, a children's play area, a model yachting lake, and a fishing lake. The Hawthorns Urban Wildlife Centre at the southern end has been built on the former site of Southampton Zoo and the comprehensive displays document the natural history of the area; with interactive resources, educational facilities and information about local wildlife and environmental management. To the west, bordering on Hill Lane, is a historic cemetery that also includes many rare flora and fauna. Cemetery Lake is popular for birds. The south east of the Common includes an open-air paddling pool that has recently been refurbished and a play area for children. This is located near to a car parking zone and the Cowherds Inn, a local landmark which has a history going back to the 17th century.”

“Riverside Park is a 32 hectare site located along the River Itchen and includes six football pitches, two cricket pitches, a tennis court, skate park and three play areas. The Southampton and District Society of Model Engineers run a miniature railway open to the public on Sunday afternoons during the summer months. Take a leisurely walk along the River Itchen, a chalk river designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Recognised internationally as an important habitat for wildlife such as salmon, water voles, kingfishers, dragonflies and otters. The non-tidal section of the river support a variety of freshwater fish, including dace, roach and the migratory salmon and sea trout. Continuing along the river gives views onto the conservation areas on the other side where unusual species make their home including kingfisher, water vole, otter, various warblers and sometimes even cuckoos. The Itchen Navigation Heritage Trail Project is a Heritage Lottery project managed by the Wildlife Trust preserving an internationally important chalk river system for future generations. They have produced a range of leaflets on walks along the Itchen Navigation from Riverside Park to Winchester. Bargeman's Walk Mansbridge is a two mile circular walk starting and ending at Woodmill.”

“The Titanic Engineers' Memorial is a memorial in East (Andrews) Park, Southampton, United Kingdom, to the engineers who died in the Titanic disaster on 15 April 1912. The bronze and granite memorial was originally unveiled by Sir Archibald Denny, president of the Institute of Marine Engineers on 22 April 1914. Joseph Bell was the Chief Engineer Officer on the RMS Titanic. His staff consisted of 24 engineers, 6 electrical engineers, two boilermakers, a plumber and a clerk. None survived the sinking. The monument was originally erected with funding from worldwide donations. It was designed and built by Whitehead and Son of the Imperial Works, Kennington Oval in London. Ferdinand Victor Blundstone was the sculptor. It is officially a Grade II listed building. It features a bronze statue of Nike, the Greek Winged Goddess of Victory, created by Trieste-born sculptor Romeo Rathmann, and carvings which represent the engineer officers of the ship, who died in the disaster. On a sunny afternoon on 22 April 1914, 100,000 people gathered in Andrews Park, Southampton to witness the unveiling of the memorial to the engineers who lost their lives on the Titanic two years earlier. The bronze and granite structure was draped in the Union flag. Unveiling the statue, Sir Archibald Denny said: "By the manner of their deaths [the engineers] carried out one of the finest traditions of our race." "They must have known that pumping could do no more than delay the final catastrophe, yet they stuck pluckily to their duty." "Driven back from boiler-room to boiler-room, fighting for every inch of draught to give time for the launching of the boats, not one of those brave officers was saved."”
