The local area guide to living in Whitchurch

Whitchurch is a small town on the River Test in Hampshire, England. It is the county’s smallest town and is surrounding by pretty rolling hills and green forests. It is conveniently placed around 12 miles from Winchester and 13 miles from Newbury.

The area was first settled in the iron age and was later the site of Roman occupation. The name Whitchurch, however, is Anglo Saxon in origin and literally means ‘white church’ – with the earliest written record dating back to 909 AD in a charter written by King Edward the Elder. All Hallows Church, an originally Saxon church within the town, is the building that provided the name.

Through the middle ages, it became a prominent market town and began to become heavily reliant on the wool trade, making use of water mills built on the River Test. One of these mills is still available to visit today.

A large part of the town is a conservation area, containing many listed buildings, and is only a short distance from the North Wessex Downs. The River Test, such an important part of the town’s historic economy, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest thanks to the large amount and variety of wildlife in and around its waters.

Information about the local residents

Currently, Whitchurch has a population of around 4,800. The residents are a mix of those who live and work locally (or in one of the nearby larger towns) with some London commuters thrown in too.

The surrounding Test Valley as a whole is relatively well off, with over 60% of households belonging to the ABC1 social grades. Property ownership is high, at over 70%, and unemployment is exceptionally low at just 1.3%, which compares to 3.3% for the rest of the country.

What’s more, self-reported states of health are very high – fully 50% of the population say their health is ‘very good’ and a further 35% say ‘good’. Education levels are also high.

Whitchurch has a friendly, active community that revolves around amateur sports (including Whitchurch United F.C), two cricket teams, and a rugby club. There is also a popular amateur theatre group, called WADS, which has been running for nearly 60 years now.

Every year Whitchurch holds a beer festival at the Longmeadow Sports and Social Club, which is run by CAMRA.
