Stubbington covers the old parish of Crofton which dates from Saxon times, and parts of the old Holy Rood church date back to the 14th century. In the 17th century Stubbington was noted for its smuggling activities. Stubbington and Hill Head are now largely residential areas due to the development which has occurred over the last twenty years. The coast at Hill Head provides a locally-popular recreation area for activities such as dinghy-sailing, sea-angling and board-sailing. Part of the Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve lies to the west of the ward; the reserve is managed by the County Recreation Department and constitutes an important wetland habitat for birds and plants.
