It is here that Florence Nightingale spent her summers.
The Nightingale family acquired Embley Park near Romsey in 1825 for 125,000 pounds, and with it an estate of approximately 4,000 acres which included the whole of Wellow parish. It was to be their main family home until W. E. Nightingale, Florence's father, died in 1874 . The house is now an independent school (Hampshire Collegiate School), part of the United Church Schools Trust, whilst St Margaret's parish church in Wellow contains the Nightingale family grave.
Like-minded people from the school, parish and county are coming together in 2010 to coordinate their own series of events to mark the centenary of the passing of Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) on 13 August 1910.
