Hook, Hampshire

Hook is located in north east Hampshire within the district of Hart. Whilst it is a large village (in 2021 census the population was 9060) it still retains its “Village” feel.  It is a vibrant village with over 35 clubs and local groups.

It has good connections with a main trainline to London Waterloo, a direct junction (Jn 5) on to the M3 and the village lies either side of the A30.  It is just 15 minutes drive from the large towns of Basingstoke one side and Fleet the other.

The village is well served with amenities including; a post office, two supermarkets, two petrol stations, four pubs, an infant and junior school, three churches and a number of independent shops.  We also have 10 playgrounds, a floodlit skate park, tennis courts, a bowling green, a cricket ground, MUGA (Multi Use Games Area), football and rugby pitches (with changing facilities), squash courts, and two village halls that offer a varitiy of activities including  exercise classes, children’s classes and sports such as badminton and table tennis.

We are surrounded by a number of green spaces/parks, common land (Hook Common & Bartley Heath, which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest) and SANG’s (Suitable Areas of Alternate Natural Green) Whitewater Meadows & Bassetts Mead.  For more information visit the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust‘s website.

The village is fortunate to have the river Whitewater running along one end of the village.  This is a very special, as it is a chalk stream and is one of only 200 in the world and home to a number of rare species.
