Can you give a bit more information as to why you think it's Hampshire? Any pointers would be useful.

It looks to me as if you have a small river in the foregound, a straight road and a very nice timber house as well as other properties.

The timber house may be listed in Pevsner's Buildings of England. There are also numerous publications relating to villages in different counties. There's a village book for Berkshire and I suspect there's one for Hampshire as well.

Failing that, contact the Hants Federation of WIs, local press, libraries with local history sections.

Hi Thanks for your reply

I found it among family photos and my family is from Hampshire. At first I wondered if it may be Itchen Abbas, which was our family home for several generations, because of the river and the road, but I have known the village all my life and the buildings and their situation are not right. I will follow up your suggestions. Thanks again Sally
