Mrs Helen Douglas, Parish Council Chairman has a keen interest in local history.

Did you know that Fair Oak derived its name from the original fair that was held under the oak tree in the centre of the village?

Horton Heath is named after the two farms ‘East Horton Farm’ and ‘West Horton Farm’ on the old heath in the parish then known as Bishopstoke.
