The village enjoys an excellent local school and shop and strong sense of community. Positioned approx. 5 miles west of the market town of Romsey, on the southern bank of the River Dun, there is a train station at the neighbouring villages of Dunbridge and West Dean along with a local pub. Butts Green hosts the majority of the amenities including the excellent village school and active community hall and derived its name from Tudor times when able-bodied men of the village were required to spend an hour each Sunday practicing archery. The target was known as the “butt”. Lockerley Green hosts the village stores and post office and with Top Green offering some aesthetically pleasing architecture with picturesque surrounding scenery. The neighbouring village of Awbridge is also close by and the property falls within catchment for the reputable Awbridge Primary School.
