Everything you needed to know about the Doomsday town ahead of your big move.
Basingstoke is the largest town in the county of Hampshire and lies across a valley at the source of the River Loddon. The etymology for the name of the town came from the position of the settlement of the Anglo-Saxon leader Basa’s people. The town is recorded in the Doomsday Book as a weekly market site, and has held a regular Wednesday market since 1214. The brewing and cloth industries were important in the development of the town between the 17th and 19th centuries and in later years Burberry’s first ever store opened in the town in 1856, by former draper’s apprentice Thomas Burberry. Oliver Cromwell is said to have stayed in Basingstoke towards the end of the siege of Basing House, during the English Civil War and the author Jane Austen was born several miles from Basingstoke and drafted ‘Pride and Prejudice’ whilst living nearby. Henry VIII visited Vyne House during his reign and the property is now open to the public and managed by the National Trust. Your Basingstoke removal is just the start of life in this historic area of Hampshire.
