The Village Booklet on Steep explores this ancient Hampshire village near Petersfield. The booklet describes a village set beneath the beautiful Hampshire hangars. The poet Edward Thomas, whose poetry symbolized this lovely landscape, once resided here. Steep also has a long association with Bedales school.

Together with a useful map showing Steep and its contiguous settlements, are descriptions of village places of worship, past and present. Of particular interest are details of Primitive Methodists and their two chapels.

Surnames of Steep past inhabitants are scattered throughout this booklet, from school master and inn keeper to landowner, and sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories are explored. Did your family pass through the turnpike between Petersfield and Alton, as it wound its way through the hangars? Whatever your connection with Steep, this booklet will provide lots of interesting detail.
