Occupying over 20 hectares of land at the northern borders of Whitehill & Bordon town, Louisburg Barracks was originally built at the turn of the 20th Century to house Field Artillery Regiments. Broxhead House, where BASE now stands, was used to house the Commanding General Officer and later by the Brigade Commander of the Garrison. Having survived through World War II, Louisburg Barracks had already played host to two artillery regiments, a veterinary hospital for artillery horses and became the headquarters for the Canadian Army. 

 

Our Heritage. Our home.

After the war, Broxhead House became the Officers Mess of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers and the Territorial Army – a place for military personnel to eat, socialise and relax. Now vacated by the MoD, Broxhead House has been restored and transformed into a high-tech hub for ambitious businesses in the East Hampshire area and beyond. Though modernised throughout, BASE still retains some of the most striking features of the original Broxhead House, including our grand and spacious business lounge and the gable wall of our tranquil Secret Garden.
