50° 54' N ; long. 1° 24' W. Pop. 80,000. Southampton Water forms one of the finest harbours in the kingdom, being quite land-locked, and its approaches so protected that no sea of any consequence can rise. The largest ships arrive at and leave the harb. at all times of tide. The anchorage is remarkably good. There is a second high-water about two hours after the first, the knowledge of which is most important to the mariner. The first high-water at the full and change of the moon is at 10h 30m, the second high-water at 12h 45m, and low water at 4h. To ships using the graving ducks this double tide is very advantageous, as the water remains nearly stationary for nearly two hours ; thus, without risk, allowing vessels to come out of the dock, and others to enter, without losing a tide. Auth. The Docks are the property of the Southampton Dock Company; there are also Quays where vessels discharge which are under the jurisdiction of the Southampton Harbour Board, together with piers mostly used by passenger steamers to and from the Isle of Wight, &c.
