Cosham is a thriving community on the outskirts of Portsmouth, it was mentioned in the Domesday book and started as a Saxon village in the 6th century.

It was called Cossa's ham, which meant Cossa's village or estate. However, until the 19th century, Cosham was only a small village. In 1847 a railway line opened in Portsmouth and a railway station was built at Cosham. For the first time, it was possible to travel quickly and easily from Cosham and Portsmouth.

Cosham High Street is the traditional home of shopping in Cosham, it runs from Cosham Railway Station, north up towards Havant Road.  The street is a traditional mix of approximately 200 traders including a Post Office, bakers, greengrocers and much more. Markets are often held in the northern pedestrianised section of the High Street. The town has excellent transport links, with the train station, bus routes and A3 close by.  

Our Cosham store is adjoined to our Cosham Support Centre and is a busy retail shop where there is always a warm welcome from our team and our supportive volunteers. The store sells household items, clothing, women’s and men’s, and a varied selection of goods and has become a destination store for interesting finds!
