The name Stratton comes from the Latin via strata meaning a paved way and indicates that the village was on the Roman road between Winchester and Silchester. Unsurprisingly, East Stratton was to the east of this road and West Stratton to the west.
East Stratton is a quintessential English village, nestling in the rolling chalk downland surrounded by open farmland and woods. The village has some 50 houses, mainly 17th, 18th and 19th-century thatched cottages together with the 19th-century church of All Saints, The Northbrook Arms public house and the newly rebuilt village hall.
