Linkenholt and Faccombe
Linkenholt and Faccombe are at the extreme Northern boundary of the Test Valley district council area. Linkenholt is a tiny, remote rural community, set in surroundings of great beauty. St Peter's church, built in 1871, replacing an ancient parish church, has striking wooden spire and a pretty lych gate. The village also has a very attractive cricket ground. Faccombe is at the highest point in the district, at 800 feet, and nearby there are splendid views across the North Wessex Downs. St Barnabas' church has the small Norman font from the original mother church at Netherton, and some 17th century monuments. The pub and most of the property in the village is owned by the Faccombe Estate.

The delightful picture of The Jack Russell seen across the village pond is courtesy of Hampshire Cam.You can dine in the attractive conservatory.
