Ashford Hill with Headley
The parish of Ashford Hill with Headley was originally part of the ancient parish of Kingsclere, first as the parish of Kingsclere Woodlands (1841) - the Ashford church and vicarage were built in about 1824 and the school soon after, with Headley gaining its own church (St. Peter) in 1868. The present church and local authority parish includes Wheathold Green, Fair Oak, Ashford  Hill, Plastow Green, Goose Hill, Mill Green, Headley Common, Axmansford,  Haughurst Hill, Little Aldershot and parts of Wolverton Common; the northern boundary of the parish is the river Enborne.

Ashford had home shopping services long before the Internet era - each market day the carrier, Mr Piper, would set off for Newbury with a few passengers and orders from local people. The Newbury shops and traders sent him back with boxes full of items on approval. Next market day he brought payments for any goods the local people kept.
