Carters of Swanwick was originally formed by two Carter Brothers in 1921. They provided servicing and repairs to the Swanwick and surrounding areas.

Swanwick was then considered a district covering a large part of the famous strawberry growing area from Botley through to Titchfield and down to Swanwick Wood where the old 'Bursledon' Brickworks were located near the Hamble River. The business then was servicing and repairing horticultural and agricultural machines such as tractors and Rotavators. Motor cars and motorcycles and farm machinery were also catered for.

After the Carters brothers Mr Eric Farmer then owned the company for many years and indeed the present owner Stan Jacobs, who joined the company as a sales director in 1964, was an employee of the late Mr Farmer.

The Jacobs family have owned the business since 1975 and the picture in the article below shows the garage site at this time.
