Description:
Hamworthy is a parish and inner suburb of Poole in Dorset, England. Hamworthy lies on a peninsula of approximately and is bounded by Upton to the north, Poole Harbour to the west and Holes Bay to the east. Poole Bridge, the southern terminus of the A350 road, connects the suburb with the town centre. Hamworthy is the location of the Port of Poole ferry passenger terminal and cargo handling operations.

Hamworthy was the site of an Iron Age settlement before it was taken over by the Romans in the 1st century and named Moriconium. The Romans made use of the harbour, and built a road from Hamworthy to Badbury Rings.

The closure of the power station in the early 1990s and of other industrial sites close to the bridge has provided an area for regeneration. This includes plans for a second bridge crossing, and major house building.

Hamworthy has a railway station, with a twice hourly South West Trains service to London Waterloo on the South Western Main Line.

The area has a wide spread reputation for crime and deprivation and long with Alderney is amongst the 2% most deprived in the country.

Hamworthy has three schools, Carter Community School, Hamworthy First School and Hamworthy Middle School.
