Hursley House

Built in 1724 by William Heathcote, Hursley House was a nursing home during the First World War. It became the home of Vickers Aviation until 1954. Vickers developed the Spitfire at Hursley. IBM began using the site for R&D in 1958.


Hursley has been home to IBM's WebSphere middleware, MQ Series, message queue technology and  the CICs transaction system. IBM uses the site to showcase future technologies like the connected home, smart metering and high-tech retailing.
