Summer Outing - Hambledon - Saturday, 2 July 2022

6in to 1 mile map extract from 1910

Some photographs from the day.

The Hambledon Local History Group were hosts for the day. The note that Hambledon is a"...happy, close community and which enjoys its historic village, which now with a population of only 1000 people is widely known for three things - its contribution to cricket, the splendid Hambledon wine from the first modern-day commercial vineyard in the UK and rather less pleasantly for persistent groundwater flooding."

The day was based at Hambledon Village Hall. The Hall is located just off the B2150 Droxford to Waterlooville road, adjacent to the Vine public house. For satnavs please use the PO7 4RW postcode. Public transport is very limited. Morning coffee and afternoon tea were available at the Hall. Lunch was available from a number of outlets in the village.
