Whitchurch is a small Hampshire country town, nestling in the Upper reaches of the River Test, and surrounded by fine chalk and flint downland and tranquil countryside. The town is fortunate to be surrounded by stunning countryside; the beautiful crystal clear waters of the famous River Test flow through the centre of the town.

To the north of the town Whitchurch is bordered by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where the sweeping, chalk downland and fields of wheat and barley are home to the skylark and lapwing, the buzzard and red kite. This is a landscape criss-crossed by quiet lanes and ancient tracks that walkers can enjoy and a few miles to the west of Whitchurch you will find the remains of Harewood Forest, a rare example of truly ancient woodland and home to a large native deer population.
