Oliver Cromwell’s Battery

The Battery has an interesting history stretching back to Oliver Cromwell’s time and beyond.  The logo taken by the Parish Council has as its centrepiece an image from a Saxon bowl found locally.

Today the Battery is an active community with a primary school, an Anglican church (St Mark’s) and many active voluntary groups.

Local features include the village sign and recreation ground.

Development in the area is in accordance with the Village Design Statement that was produced with assistance from the Parish Council, Winchester City Council, Hampshire County Council and W S Atkins Consultancy.
