Set in a steeply-banked churchyard beside a small wood, St. Mary The Virgin serves a scattered parish of isolated hamlets close to the Wiltshire border. The Saxons brought Christianity to the valley in the 6th century, although no evidence of a pre-Norman foundation has been discovered.

Village Hall

Built in 2000 from National Lottery funding the hall provides an important venue for village events, private parties and commercial activities. Its modern facilities include a kitchen, stage and state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment and a light and airy interior. Catering equipment is also available for hire for both internal and external use.

The Millennium Hall is central to village events and hosts many activities, from film-showings to the Parish Council meetings. The hall is also available for hire for private functions and has a full entertainments and liquor license.

Vernham Dean is fortunate to have acclaimed primary and pre-schools which draw children from the surrounding area and from as far afield as Andover. Both schools participate regularly in local events and are seen as making valuable contributions to village life.


Vernham Dean is situated in the Bourne Valley in North-West Hampshire 25 minutes from Jct 13 of the M4 and 35 minutes from Jct 8 of the M3. The Bourne Valley is steep-sided in places and contains feeder streams for the famous River Test.
