Upper Clatford, Andover, Hampshire.

The 17th century thatched Crook and Shears Inn. Upper Clatford is one of a number of small picturesque villages near Andover which tend to feature thatched rooves.

The village is within walking distance of Andover town centre, about one and a half miles and there is a public footpath on the south-west edge of the town which goes to Upper Clatford.

A Brick and Flint House, Upper Clatford, Andover, Hampshire, England, Great Britain
Upper Clatford, Andover, Hampshire.

An 18th century brick and flint house with a thatched roof. This was originally two dwellings now converted into one. You can see that, generally, there are no pavements in this village but then there isn't much traffic either.

A Timber-Framed Cottage, Upper Clatford, Andover, Hampshire, England, Great Britain
Upper Clatford, Andover, Hampshire.

A timber-framed and rather pretty thatched cottage probably, like most of the others in the village, of 18th century origin.

Clatford is an old English term meaning 'the ford where the burdock grows'.
