Archaeological evidence suggests that people have lived here from the Neolithic era right through to the Bronze Age, Iron Age and onward. While an “Alresford” appeared in the Domesday Book of 1086, however, this likely referred to Old Alresford.
Indeed, New Alresford wasn’t officially established until the 12th/13th century. Despite a somewhat late start, it quickly became a prosperous market town, focused on wool, leather, sheep and cattle trade.
In 1644, during the English Civil War, the Battle of Cheriton took place nearby. This unfortunately led to defeated Royalist forces setting fire to many of the houses in the town as they withdrew.
A few decades later, possibly in 1689, another fire caused significant damage to New Alresford. It has, of course, since recovered and continues to thrive to this day. Make the most of your time here by stopping in an Afternoon Tea New Alresford establishment for a nice spot of lunch.
