South Warnborough

South Warnborough street scene

The name derives from "Weargebuman", the Saxon name for Whitewater and meaning "felon stream", i.e. "the stream where felons are drowned".

The parish rises southwards from the valley of the River Whitewater to the North Downs at over 700 feet - the highest point in the district. The undulating countryside is unspoilt and the village contains old brick and half-timbered cottages, many under thatch. The 12/13th Century Church of St. Andrew is worth a visit for it has many interesting Norman features.
