The parish of Breamore, earlier called 'Brumore', which possibly meant a moor where Broom grows.

The village is mainly situated along the A338 between Fordingbridge and Downton, but the Saxon church and Breamore House are about three-quarters of a mile west of the line of the road. Breamore Down has several tumuli, the long barrow known as the Giant's Grave, and the mysterious Mizmaze on its heights. Argument still rages as to whether the Bronze Age people or mediaeval monks were responsible for these patterns cut in the turf.
