Please note whilst we make these changes the pages will continue to be changing over the next few weeks. Step by step we aim to share more data about the people, places and events that have shaped the history of this ancient county.

Explore the history of Hampshire by searching for a place name such as Winchester or Soberton or journey down the chalk streams such as the Test Valley, maybe you are interested in the little known places such as Knights Enham? You can search for a Hampshire place name to find posts and images that relate to the history of that location. Every post is geolocated, making it easy for you to search. Just type in the place name you want to find out about or use our interactive map

We have an enormous gazetteer under construction, a collection of old and current place names in Hampshire but it will take time to pull together. We will add data in as time and dog walks allow. The intention is to link the gazetteer to all our content so please keep returning and if there are mistakes please free free to politely let us know.
