East Hampshire


Liphook, Hampshire


Rural life in Liphook has changed since the arrival of the motor car. Once, carriages carrying royalty passed through the village and the occupants would often stay overnight at the Royal Anchor Hotel.

Now community life in Liphook could possibly be stronger than it was in the 1800s. There is a thriving, caring attitude amongst most of the residents and the new community school helps to provide recreational facilities and further education for adults and children alike.

The village carnival, which takes place in October each year, started life as an 'Old Boys' Bonfire Club', which celebrated the anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot.
