About Bassett

Bassett is the most northern ward in Southampton, bounded by Swaythling to the east, Coxford to the west and has a population of around 13,340. It is a northern gateway and main route into Southampton via the M3 and A33 and is an area of contrasts. The west of Bassett Avenue/ The Avenue is dotted with semi-detached and detached private housing as well as a golf course and the Sports Centre. To the east is terraced housing inhabited by long-standing close-knit communities such as on the Flower Estate.
