The Froxfield Village Booklet explores this ancient Hampshire village, located high on a plateau near Petersfield.

This booklet describes a village overflowing with history, from ancient times to its more recent literary connections with the poet Edward Thomas, who drew inspiration from the beautiful Hampshire hangar scenery.

Along with a useful map showing Froxfield and its contiguous settlements, are descriptions of the places of worship, past and present. Of particular interest is the complex story of the two churches.

Surnames of Froxfield inhabitants are sprinkled throughout, from school master and inn keeper to landowner; and sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories are explored.

The Hampshire Record Office references to the Love family charity are particularly useful. This booklet on the history and people of Froxfield is a fascinating read for those with connections to the county.
