Goodworth Clatford, Upper Clatford and Anna Valley
The parish of Goodworth Clatford is covers and large, narrow area sloping down the Anton valley and up to Harewood Forest in the East. Delightful thatched cottages border the road that runs through Goodworth Clatford and Upper Clatford, which abuts the Southern edge of Andover. The name Goodworth comes from the Saxon settlement, "Goda's Enclosure". By the time of the Domesday survey it had become "Godorde" and was held by the nuns of nearby Wherwell Priory. St Peter's Church has elements of Norman building and decoration, 13th and 14th century additions, right through to the 19th Century. The tower has an active team of bellringers.

Upper Clatford Parish Council
The parish council maintains web pages at the HantsNet site. The index suggests that one might find meetings information, local history and other local information, but at 21 March 2002 only the councillor details were found.
