Little Woodham – 17th Century Village
Show / Display
Little Woodham Lane, Howe Road, Rowner, Gosport, Hampshire, PO13 8AB
A wonderful insight to the 17th Century at the site of this award winning living history village.
Within the parish of Rowner, surrounded by ancient woodland, lies the 17th century village of Little Woodham. It may have been created only some 30 years ago but a visit here is like a step inside the pages of history books. You can explore the grounds and buildings, and see where the Villagers would have worked, lived and relaxed. Imagine how you’d have coped back in that place and time? Perhaps you’d end up in the stocks!
The small group of volunteer re-enactors who usually bring the village fully to life and buzzing with activiity, cannot all be present for HODs, but a few Villagers will add to the period atmosphere and tell you about the full Little Woodham experience which can be enjoyed on their usual *public open days.
The village is also used as a film location and backdrop to many documentaries and dramas by numerous national and international film and TV companies. Dr Who was filmed there just recently.
