Medstead is located about five miles West of Alton and is around 700 feet above sea level. It has an interesting Norman church and various other historical buildings and sites, including an iron age fort. Like many rural villages in the area, Medstead has grown a lot and nearly all of the many old 'colonial bungalows' have now been replaced with larger modern homes.
Despite its seemingly sleepy image, Medstead was one of the first villages in the country to get broadband and has an excellent range of local facilities, clubs and organisations.
Following a disastrous fire in Medstead Village Hall in December 2009, the Hall suffered extensive damage - full story and pictures. After a major repair, refurbishment and improvement programme, the Village Hall is back in regular use.
