Lockerley

Five miles North West of Romsey and immediately West of Mottisfont, the Parish of Lockerley touches the Wiltshire border in the West. The village of Lockerley is very attractive, and is situated on a tributary of the River Test.

The manor was recorded in the Domesday Book as a possession of the Archbishop of York.  The name was spelt Locherslei and is associated with a shepherd or keeper. The present church dates from 1889-1890, but the ground plan of the Norman church has been marked out alongside.

Further information on attractions to discover in the area and other interesting villages to visit is available.  For information on public services for Lockerley  please take a look at the Romsey local pages.
