The parish of Quarley is situated on the Wiltshire border to the south-west of Andover, between the parishes of Amport in the north and Grateley in the south. The soil is light and chalky in this rural area, and supports arable crops and grazing for cattle. The village of Quarley lies towards the north-east corner of the parish, and Quarley Hill to the south-west rises to a height of 561 feet. The Manor of Quarley was held by Earl Harold before the Norman Conquest, but in the Domesday Book the manor was assigned to William the Conqueror. The parish church of St. Michael dates from Saxon times. Having neither a bell turret or bellcote, its bells hang in a shingled wooden frame outside the church.
