Soberton


Soberton

Soberton is a very old village in the Meon Valley, Hampshire, England and is bordered by villages such as Newtown and Droxford. It is listed in the Domesday Book under its original name, 'Sudbertone'/'Sudbertune', and comes under Winchester City Council.

Key features of Soberton include the War Memorial at its centre, the historical church and the White Lion Pub. The church is part of one of the largest parishes in the UK. The old railway station at Droxford was made famous for its June 1944 visit by Winston Churchill.

It is one of the few areas of Southern England that was never settled by the Romans, but instead by the Jutes.Fact|date=February 2007
