About Hook

  • Crocuses at the War Memorial

Hook is situated in the district of Hart, in north east Hampshire. It is a large village (in 2011 the population was 8,334) lying astride the A30, just to the north of the M3 at Junction 5, about six miles from Basingstoke.

The village is bounded on the east side by the picturesque valley of the River Whitewater, and to the south by two areas of common land – Hook Common and Bartley Heath.

Bartley Heath is an area of wet heathland designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is particularly remarkable for the presence of the rare Marsh Gentian.

Bartley Heath and Hook Common are easily accessible from the village and are a great place to enjoy wildlife. For more information visit the Hampshire Wildlife Trust‘s website.

Hook has a busy community life – find out more from the links on the About Hook menu to the left of the page.

The Echo Hotel Music Club (EHMC) is part of the ‘Hook Live!’ initiative launched in 2019 by Hook Parish Council, which brings good quality, live entertainment to Hook.
EHMC presents the original works of both established, recorded artists including new talents from as far afield as the USA along with the talents of up-and-coming artists.
The ethos of the EMHC is to offer great live music at affordable prices to genuine, enthusiastic music-lovers.   Go to website >>
