Trafalgar Lodge formerly stood to the south of Bracken Lane in Shirley Warren. From about 1850 it was the home of Admiral Sir Charles Bullen, the last surviving captain who served under Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Bullen had the house built in what the Hampshire Independent described as the ‘Elizabethan’ style in about 1850 (see clipping below). It remained a private residence until after World War Two when it was acquired by the Poor Clare Convent. It was demolished, despite local objections, in 2011.
