Down Your Way: Images of Hampshire's Villages

Hampshire Chronicle

Every day it seems that Britain’s village amenities are disappearing: pubs, post offices and schools. But this is not always the case, and in parts of Hampshire the villages are thriving and popular at the beginning of the 21st century.

In this exploration of some of the most beautiful corners of the county, a team of estate agents and journalists have worked together to chronicle life in Hampshire’s villages as it is today. Among the colourful pages you will read of busy Cheriton, where the pub, school, village hall, cricket club and drama group are at the heart of the community, and of such initiatives as the weekly produce market at Droxford and the community-run bus service in Broughton.

The lavish illustrations and informative text mean that this book is a must-have for anyone with an interest in Hampshire’s picturesque villages – their history, and what life is like there today. This carefully compiled book is sure to have a wide appeal, being based on the popular ‘Down Your Way’ feature that appears regularly in the Hampshire Chronicle.
