SO PLEASE NOTE, you may see changes as we upgrade our Web software and design for the next chapter...watch this space. Thanks for your patience.
Welcome to the Hampshire History website to explore connect and share the history of the ancient county of Hampshire. It's an ongoing project, mapped out around a kitchen table with a brew on the go so, guess what, it's not perfect.
One of our aims is to forge connections between all who are inspired by Hampshire and work to keep its unique story stitched together. We try and help the many people who get in touch with us to piece together their own personal Hampshire history but as it all has to fit in around the day job please be patient.
So whether you are a 'Hampshire Hog', working in an organisation or business that has Hampshire at it's heart or a visitor to the county, feel free to contact us to share all that is great about Hampshire, it's culture and history.
Regularly updated , free to use, with many original photographs, interactive maps, tools and resources, we hope you will enjoy it, share it with us and your friends. Use Hampshire History to help all share, discover, connect and extend our mutual knowledge and love for the history of this great county.
