Denmead is a village in Hampshire, England. It is part of the City of Winchester district. As of 2005, it had a population of 6,457 and an electorate of 4,987.

Denmead occupancies all have Waterlooville postal addresses (Waterlooville is in turn part of Havant) and is considered to be a village attached to Waterlooville by Hampshire County Council.Waterlooville is about 3 km away from Denmead.

The village became well known in the 19th century as a venue for cock fighting.

The church is the All Saints' Church and it also has a church hall.

The village is next to part of the Forest of Bere, and rural farm land. The 'gap' between Waterlooville is gradually being reduced, but Denmead is currently a rural village, although it has had much housing development in recent years.

There are two schools, Denmead Infant School and Denmead Junior School. 1st Denmead Scout group have a scout hut and field just outside the village centre.

In the village centre there are a few shops, the Co-op and a bakery being only a couple of them, although there is also a bank, a cashpoint and an estate agents.

In recent years, a village skate park has also been constructed in King George's playing field in order to provide more leisure activities for the youth of Denmead. Along with this, a pavilion has been built alongside it, this pavilion is used mainly to enrich youth lives again, as it is the headquarters of a popular Denmead youth group.

[edit] History

In 1316, Denmead was owned by the Bishop of Winchester, who leased it to various tenants. It became referred to as a manor in 1449, when it was owned by William Wayte. When Wayte's grandson died, the lands were divided amongst various other members of the family and Denmead was passed down.

After some time the property became further divided as it was split between different owners because it was inherited down multiple generations. This occurred frequently until 1831 when Henry Kennett became its owner. There was no further mention of Denmead Manor until 1908, when the Ecclesiastical Commissioners were its Lords of the Manor.

Denmead was once a widely dispersed village but has become more densely packed and close as it became filled with more modern properties. The parish possesses a church, "All Saints" which was built in 1880 and is constructed with flint, brick and stone fillings.

Denmead in its current form was created in 1932 from the lower southern end of Hambledon Parish [1].

In the run up to D-Day many American and Canadian troops, including U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower, camped under the cover of local forests. Nearby Creech Wood also housed a prisoner of war camp, some remains of which can still be found in the undergrowth.

[edit] Sport and leisure

Denmead is home to the Denmead Striders, an athletics running club. Denmead also has a brass band. There is a memorial hall. Denmead also has a fitness trail which stretches around half of the village.

Denmead has a King George's Field in memorial to King George V where the village cricket, football, tennis and bowls clubs are based.

Denmead is also home to the Mead End Football Club, a team from Meon Valley League division 4 who are based out of the Mead End Inn. Games are played at the nearby naval facility at Southwick Park.
