Living History

Little Woodham (maybe better known as the 17th century Village) was established in 1984 by the English Civil War Society, and was originally known simply as the Village.  When the ECWS relinquished control of the site after their 1985 visit, a local Living History Society was set up to run the Village and host visits by schools and the paying public.  Little Woodham gained its present name at this time.

Visiting Little Woodham is an amazing insight into the world of the seventeenth century, and the lives and livelihoods of our not-too-distant ancestors.   The Living History Society is still going strong, and you can learn more about them and visits to Little Woodham at their own website (see left).

Nearest post code is PO13 8AB.

Directions to Little Woodham from the M27

Leave the M27 at Junction 11, taking the southbound A27 signposted towards Fareham and Gosport.

Stay in the lane for Gosport, which will take you under the railway bridge and on to the A32.  Follow the A32 towards Gosport.  Once you have passed the Ice Rink on your right, at the next roundabout get into the right-hand lane; you will see the Napoleonic-era Fort Brockhurst on your left.

Turn right towards Rowner and Stubbington.  Over the humpbacked bridge there is another roundabout.

Turn left into Grange Road.  Go down Grange Road and turn right into Howe Road.

Take the first left turning off Howe Road; this is Little Woodham Lane.  The road is narrow, so please drive carefully.

Drive through the set of large metal gates into a large courtyard.  Park in this courtyard (away from the houses, please).  The Village is beyond the glasshouses on the other side of the fence; use the gate nearest the houses - walk through and follow the road to the edge of the woodland.  Turn left immediately you get into the trees, and follow the path through the wood to the village.
