A short history of Odiham
The Domesday Book describes Odiham in detail. Attractive buildings provide a long term link to work, worship and recreation of previous centuries.
North Warnborough is the complementary village within the Parish. It boasts the castle from which King John set out for Runnymede to sign the Magna Carta.
North Warnborough Green, Odiham Common and the Basingstoke Canal are Sites of Special Scientific Interest. Orchids, herbs, dragonflies, aquatic diversity and other wildlife are famous here.
You can see signs of the agricultural heritage in small fields where animals still graze. There are also many surviving public houses and high street restaurants. These will provide food, drink and somewhere to rest after enjoying a walk through the Parish.
