Named from a Saxon description of this area, meaning "a field by the lake where the waterlilies grow", this small parish includes the hamlets of Chatter Alley and Pilcot.
Dogmersfield Great House is set in fine parkland. It is on the site of a 13th Century bishop's palace. Henry VI often stayed here and it was here that Henry VII came with Prince Arthur to meet Catherine of Aragon from Spain. Her marriage to Arthur, the heir to the throne took place a few weeks later, but her young husband died. His brother was crowned as Henry VIII and Catherine became the first of his six wives. The house has been renovated and is used as a research and training centre.
An embankment west of Blacksmith's Bridge carries the Basingstoke Canal high above Tundry Pond, a 20-acre lake which is a favourite haunt of wildfowl. The canal makes a wide sweep around the parkland which is a delightful rural length of the canal.
