Odiham

Odiham street scene

Odiham, once a royal township, has retained some of the prettiest old houses and cottages in the District. The Basingstoke Canal passes a few hundred yards from the High Street at Colt Hill where there is a visitors' car park. Odiham Common is a beautiful amenity enjoyed by people throughout the district and beyond. The Common is one of the best examples of wood pasture outside of the New Forest and is a site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), being notified so because of many rare examples of flora and fauna.

King Johns Castle, The Cross Barn and the Odiham Pest house are some of the oldest buildings in Hampshire. The Cross Barn in Odiham is owned by Hart District Council and is available to hire. For more information about this wonderful historic building, and how to book, please go to www.thecrossbarn.org.uk

South of the town of Odiham is RAF Odiham - home of the RAF's famous Chinook helicopters squadrons which may often be seen exercising in the area.
