SU2732 : Buckholt Farm, Buckholt

taken 11 years ago, near to West Tytherley, Hampshire, Great Britain

Buckholt Farm, Buckholt
Buckholt Farm, Buckholt
Buckholt Farm consists of several farmhouses and the usual farm buildings, and this 19th century house is on the western edge of the farm site at the highest point of 127m, and at the end of Buckholt Lane from where it turns sharply south.

It was reported in Country Life magazine in July 2006, that Buckholt Farm had been sold for around its 6.5m guide price. However there was little sign of life anywhere on the farm, though there was some security in evidence.

Buckholt, called Bocholt or Bokolt in the 13th century, means 'beech wood'. It was once an 'extra-parochial' from West Tytherley to the south, but was then made a separate parish. However it has never had a parish church, there is no village, and the only buildings cluster round Buckholt Farm. It is the smallest civil parish in the borough of Test Valley, with a population of 10. There are patches of woodland in the area which are remnants of Buckholt Forest, one of the hunting grounds of Saxon and Norman Kings. William I preferred more open woodland than Buckholt and turned his attention south, where he planted the New Forest.
