Situated between East Tisted and Selborne, some five and a half miles south of Alton. The village is recorded in the Domesday Book as Newentone, while the place derives its name from Aylmerde Valence, who was given it as a grant of land. Alongside the impressive Manor House is the centuries old church. Much thirteenth century work is displayed as well as a massive 700 year old font. Beside the huge yew tree in the churchyard is the grave of Colonel Phayve, one of the signatories to the death warrant of Charles I
