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.

Candover Valley Community Store

The plans for a community store and post office attached to Preston Candover Village Hall have now been approved by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council (BDBC), but subject to a number of conditions.  The details can be viewed here.   Keep up to date with this project here.

Road works

From time to time we are advised of planned road works and temporary road closures far enough ahead to be able to warn Candover Valley residents of upcoming problems.  There are a few developments which could cause traffic delays and you can see the details here.

Views sort on policing in the valley

Hampshire’s recently elected Police and Crime Commissioner, Michael Lane, is seeking the views of county residents in the preparation of his new Police and Crime plan to provide a focus for policing and dealing with crime in the community.  Read more here.

Churchyard problems

The PCC of St Mary’s Church in Preston Candover has made good progress in dealing with the aftermath of the storm damage of the last two years which has caused the loss of two important beech trees, including the most prominent one in the middle of the churchyard.    Find out more here.

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.  See further details 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.
