When were the earlist inhabitors of Liphook?
- paul (16th Mar 2023 - 15:39:14)

Hi,
At the beginning of time on Earth, Liphook by name did not exist.
However in recorded history, our village has been inhabited for thousands of years.
There has been evidence of human activity since the Neolithic period, around 4000 BC (before Christ) in years.

Anyone had family in the area back then?

I will reply first, although my first visit to Liphook was in the early 1960’s and as a resident 7 years ago. In both cases there were many others living in the area already.

Would be great to hear about the history of our town and its most venerable residents.

Hi,
Looking forward to any replies.
Liphook has never been called a Town, now, or in the past.
As there has not been any known market historically, or town charter, this status is not bestowed.

Paul - moving on from unrecorded Neolithic times the settlement of Bramshott was established before Liphook. The iron working areas were first recorded on maps with symbols. I have looked at old maps and the Hammer symbol shows on an old map denoting what is now known as Hammer Vale where the Tudor iron works would have been. Bramshott Place still retains the Tudor gatehouse from the Manor House. That is why our Parish is officially Bramshott and Liphook. Liphook only grew after the establishment of the A3 as a route from London to Portsmouth and the building of the Royal Anchor as a coaching stop. There is information about the history of the area if you look for it.

Hi,
Yes you are right Bramshott by inhabitants in history was before Liphook.
That is why the 13th century church St Mary's stands today, as a symbol of life in communities then.

My name is Ugg, am an early cave dweller from Liphook, you folks today don’t know your born, we didn’t have a collection of low quality take away in our day, when we wanted something terrible to eat we had to go catch it ourselves!

Also when we wanted a new cave we didn’t have loads of estate agent on hand to do very little yet take commission
