Local Links

There is so much to do in and around Whitchurch. Just a small number of local activities are listed below. A great place to start is with the town's excellent website which can be found here.

Whitchurch Silk Mill - a 19th century water mill that weaves English silk fabrics using 19th century machinery. The Mill is the oldest working silk mill in Britain, still weaving in its original building.

Whitchurch Amateur Dramatic Society (WADS) - If 'treading the boards' is your thing then all you need to know is here.

Fly fishing on the River Test - Whitchurch is blessed by being located on the banks of arguably the best trout fishing river in the country. Why not book a lesson or a guided day here

Whitchurch Rambling Club – Whether it's to keep fit or enjoy the extraordinary scenery around Hampshire, this is the place to go. 

All Hallows Church - For some 1,200 years or more, townsfolk have gathered here Sunday to Sunday and week by week, to share their Christian joy and love. 

Mill Trail – An attractive walk along the River Test which passes five different historic mills, including the working Whitchurch Silk Mill. Walks from 2 miles to 7 miles. Maps available here

Millenium Meadow – A seven acre ancient water meadow filled with natural trees, grasses, wild flowers and hidden treasures of old sluices and drainage ditches. It is just a short walk from the town centre. 

And finally..……

Stonehenge – At a mere 28 miles and 35 minutes away, why not go from one historical venue to another, with the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge?
