Immediately west of East Tytherley and hugging the Wiltshire border, the parish of West Tytherley is situated seven miles north-west of Romsey, with an area of 1,181 hectares and a population of 506 in 1981. The attractive village is secluded in undulating wooded countryside in the west of the parish towards the border with Wiltshire. The name Tytherley means "young wood", and the surrounding forest may have been a young wood when the name was recorded in the Domesday Book as "Tederleg". The village of West Dean lies in the far south-west corner of the parish, and is usually attributed to Wiltshire. The site of a Roman villa lies near West Dean, and the line of the Roman road from Winchester to Old Sarum runs through the north of the parish.
