Following concerns from many local residents about parking in the village, the Parish Council would like to encourage residents to utilize their own drives and garages before resorting to parking on the public roads

If they do have to park on the public roads can they ensure that they park with care and attention to minimize the impact on their Neighbours. With Thanks Farringdon Parish Council


Farringdon is a small village in Hampshire, about four miles south of the town of Alton on the A32, Fareham road.

The village is in two parts, Lower and Upper Farringdon, linked by Shirnall Hill,
a tree covered lane that rises from the east side of the A32.

Old yewYew 2021


The Two Yew Trees, In the Churchyard, just a few yards to the west of the Church, are, without any doubt, the oldest living residents in Farringdon.

The trees are difficult to age accurately but the older tree, on the North side of the Path, has recently been estimated to be around 3,000 years old and the "younger Yew" to the South of the Path has probablybeen around for a mere 2,000 years!

After parts of the older tree collapsed under the weight of the snow in 2019 temporary props were put in place and an appeal was launched, to finance the replacement of the damaged cradle that supported the main stems of the tree in order to preserve the Farringdon Yew for future generations.


Massey's Folly from the SouthMassey's Folly (Not open to the Public) is a brickwork confection which was constructed over a long period by three workmen, overseen by the 'eccentric' Reverend Thomas Massey, Vicar of Farringdon from 1875 -1919.

Until the end of July 2015, the village hall occupied the Eastern part of the Folly (to the right of the picture above) and was used by a number of organisations from within and well beyond the village boundaries.

The Western half of the Folly (to the left of the picture), served as the Village Primary School until 1987 and was sold off after the school closed. Farringdon Children now attend Chawton or Selborne school.

Following the School Closure, the West end of the Folly served as commercial premises and a Nursery School, although it had been unoccupied for some time before the building was eventually sold for development. (The Picture on the left was taken in 2010)
For a more detailed history see the Massey's Folly page

Despite its listed status, The Folly faced an uncertain future as a Village Hall due to the heavy financial cost of maintaining the structure.
The Village Hall Management Committee eventually sold Massey's Folly for conversion into apartments
and the building was officially handed over to the new owners at the end of July 2015.
Despite a close resemblance to a Building Site several apartments were previously listed for sale but following
the financial collapse of the developer, the site is currently shut down and awaiting the decision of the current management

*Last, but by no means least, Farringdon has two welcoming village pubs, one at each end of the village.
*Both have a wide choice of real ales on offer and serve an excellent selection of home cooked food.

The Rose & Crown and Golden Pheasant restaurants* are extremely popular with both locals and visitors so you would be well advised to book a table in advance if you are planning to sample their menus.

For the latest information, check the Golden Pheasant Facebook and Rose & Crown website for updates. (Links open in a new Page)


The Golden Pheasant (formerly the Royal Oak) can be found on
the west side of the A32, Gosport Road, in Lower Farringdon

The Golden Pheasant

The Rose and Crown is situated at the top of Crows Lane, at the Junction with The Street and Hall Lane in Upper Farringdon.
