Hurstbourne Tarrant

Hurstbourne Tarrant has a wide-range of activities and events for both local people and visitors to the area.

Hurstbourne Tarrant is a village in Hampshire, England. It lies to the north of the county in the Test Valley. The Tarrant part of the name originates from 1226, when the village was given to the Cistercian Tarrant nunnery. During the Second World War, Hurstbourne Tarrant was the decoy site for RAF Andover, the headquarters of RAF Maintenance Command. This was one of four airfields in Hampshire to be given a decoy site in 1940, to deceive enemy aircraft into attacking a spurious target. (Wikepedia).

The famous Victorian, Edwardian artist, the American, Anna Lea Merritt, lived in the village for many years.
