History & Interesting facts about Nether Wallop ...

Nether Wallop is the easternmost of the three villages collectively known as The Wallops, the other two being Over Wallop and Middle Wallop. The name "Wallop" derives from the Old English words waella and hop, which taken together roughly mean "the valley of springing water".

The village was the site of the Battle of Guoloph that took place around AD 440. The element 'Wallop' is first attested in the Domesday Book of 1086 as 'Wallope', while Nether Wallop is first attested as 'Wollop inferior' c. 1270 in Episcopal Registers.

Nether Wallop contains many old thatched cottages, and has been featured in books and TV programmes as one of the prettiest villages in England.

Dane Cottage in Five Bells Lane was used as Miss Marple's home in the village of St. Mary Mead for the BBC TV adaptations of the Agatha Christie novels. The house and many of the surrounding lanes within the village were used as the setting and are commonly seen throughout many of the Miss Marple films.

Sir Richard Reade (1511–1575), Lord Chancellor of Ireland, was a native of Nether Wallop, where his family were Lords of the Manor for several generations.

The conductor Leopold Stokowski died at his home in Nether Wallop on 13 September 1977.

Danebury Iron Age Hillfort
is an Iron Age hill fort less than 10 minutes drive away. The site, covering 5 hectares, was excavated by Barry Cunliffe in the 1970s. Danebury is considered a type-site for hill forts, and was important in developing the understanding of hill forts, as very few others have been so intensively excavated. Built in the 6th century BC, the fort was used for almost 500 years, during a period when the number of hill forts in Wessex greatly increased. Danebury was remodelled several times, making it more complex and resulting in it becoming a "developed" hill fort. It is a Scheduled Monument and is surrounded by a Site of Special Scientific Interest, designated as Danebury Hill.
