This road runs south from Newbury to Andover, the latter being 9 miles away to the south-west. The village at 750 feet lies in a valley between the steep chalk downs to the east and west, many of which are heavily wooded.  Netherton was the original manor and administrative centre of the parish and is now located just inside the parish boundary about 1.5 miles to the west of the village Among the local family names appearing over the centuries are WILLIS with 17 stones in the old Netherton churchyard and 2 in St Barnabas, others are ISLES, BURTON, MANCHESTER and HILLIER/HILLIAR.

This twelve page booklet includes a great deal of historical information covering Faccombe including not only the gentry but also the teachers, publicans and ordinary people. To assist with your research, useful references for Faccombe documents and records held at the Hampshire Record Office are given throughout, together with other sources and website addresses for more information.
