The Candover Valley is a unique rural community in mid-Hampshire, centred around a group of five villages and four hamlets situated between Basingstoke and Winchester.

The aim of this site is to provide information to both locals and visitors about the events, amenities, and local services which are available in the Valley. It is in the early stages of development, and dependent on its users to provide information to go on it, and feedback and suggestions for improvement.

Oak Hill Lane

Oak Hill Lane, the BOAT (Byway open to all traffic) which runs from the Preston end of Bradley Lane across fields to Southwood Farm, is still in good condition following the resurfacing completed by Hampshire County Council in early 2015.  More information about footpaths around Preston Candover can be found here.

Scenic Strolls in the Candover Valley

Many years ago a former clerk to the Preston Candover and Nutley Parish Council compiled a series of seven circular walks using  footpaths in the parish and with links on local roads.  Details of the walks can be found here.
