Headley is a village in northeast Hampshire, first recorded in the Domesday Book in 1066. The name Headley derives from the Old English Haedleah meaning 'heath clearing' and over the centuries has been found written in various ways as Hallege (Domesday Book), Hedlegh (13th C.) and Hedleigh (17th C.) amongst others.

At the heart of the parish is All Saints' Church. There has been a Church on the present site since the 12th century at least, possibly succeeding a Saxon Church of timber, but the nave and chancel were largely reconstructed in the late 1850s. On a grass triangle outside the Holly Bush Inn (mentioned by Cobbett in his Rural Rides) in the High Street stands a chestnut tree which was planted in 1891 on the site of the old stocks.

Lunches and teas available on both days.

Proceeds will go to a fund for urgently needed work to improve the drainage at Headley Village Hall.
