I heard that Clappy Man had a Daughter whom he witnessed being killed by a car. Since then he has gone around clapping to try and scare the cars off.
As for Fanum House, the newly refurbished IBM Building now takes the title of the tallest building in Basingstoke.
Other then that, Basingstoke WAS a right dive in the 70's early 80's but once they built the Leisure Park and refurbed the Town Center (several times!) It is now a stunning place to live and work in. Could be worse, we could live in Hull! ! !

I loved Basingstoke - I went to the local pub and had a pint of wine. It was such fun and I was extremely excited when I bumped into a celeb - Cheryl Cole!!!!
I saw the church and the local priest - he told me that good things were to come in the near future, so i told him to shut up.
I loved it. I really did love it. I love Basingstoke and bought a t-shirt.

I was born in Basingstoke in 1970 and went to school at Stratton Park, which I thought was a great school! I lived on the Berg estate or bungalow estate as it is also known, I now live in Alton but still look back at my time in Basingstoke with fond memories x

Blimey Rob, we we at Charlies at the same time and were doing the same things !!!!! I used to go to the record shop at the top of town, and had a mate who run one down by the old market place. Otherwise the Feathers or the Great Western were the places for " non skinheads " Otherwise the Stable Bar or Saint Lukes Hall were " our " places. Hope we can get in touch someday.

couldn't comment on Basingstoke.I have never been,however,if you look at my address,you will notice the county name is required,because no one knows where it is.My gt.grandfather was born in your town at a place named,Sheep Wash,in 1849,(don't suppose anyone remembers him).Well,what I would like to know,is there anyone with a granny or grandfather,who would recall,such an interesting location as Sheep Wash.Kind regards to all Basingstokers.

Thanks for such a great website. I left Basingstoke's South Ham (Western Way) in 1987 at the age of ten. Does anyone remember South Ham Junior School? It shut down in 1986 and we swelled the population of Park View School (then Stratton Park). I remember the lollipop man for Western Way, a gentleman known only as 'Tiger'. Does anyone remember the massive blocks of maisonettes in Alliston Way, next to what is now Park View School? To all of my old friends, I hope you're well. If you remember me, drop a mail. Basingstoke was an unremarkable place but still didn't deserve the jokes levelled at it. It will always be remarkable to me for the fact that it is my hometown, but the last ten years or so have really seen it take on its own identity and shake off the London settlement town label. What a place it is now! Amazingstoke indeed!
