Streets & Buildings

  • A33

    This old toll road saw a revival in the 20th century with the invention of motorised transport and was reborn again as the A33. During the Second World War, older residents recall seeing the road full of military vehicles carrying troops and equipment to ports on the south coast in preparation for the D Day landings.

  • Church Street

    Church Street runs from the Crease to the river Dever. It contains many interesting buildings, along with the shop, school and church

  • Duke Street

    Duke Street runs from the Crease to Cowdown. It used to be called "Duck Street" due to the volume of water that regularly runs down the road going towards Cowdown. Some of the old photographs show a ditch to the right side of the road with small bridges over it to the houses. It still regularly floods near to the Lord Rank playing fields.

  • Rook Lane

    Rook (formerly Brook) Lane runs from Church Street to Micheldever Cottage. From there it leads into a footpath known locally as “Coffin Walk”. This path leads to East Stratton village, and until the East Stratton church was re-built in its current site, the East Stratton dead had to be wheeled all the way to Micheldever Church for the funeral service, a last bumpy ride.

  • Sloe Lane

    Sloe Lane runs from the Crease (the junction of Church Street and Duke Street), towards Stoke Charity.
