The village of Headley Down developed gradually from the 1800s; originally as a place for people to build small country retreats in the healthy air near Hindhead (the nearby Surrey town then known as the English Switzerland!)
During World War II the area became a military detention centre for Canadian servicemen and many child evacuees from London were homed locally.
Now the village has a late‐night convenience store, takeaway, fuel station, farm shop and bistro – with access to a full range of leisure and shopping facilities in the nearby towns of Bordon, Liphook and Haslemere.
