"Guidebooks to Hampshire don't tend to mention the Rowner Estate.....  If you go past it, though, you come to the Alver Valley Country Park, built of a land-fill site, and a beautiful wooded area.  Follow a track down through the woods, and you might smell wood smoke and hear voices.  Then suddenly you see a seventeenth century village:  Little Woodham.  I enjoy the strange juxtaposition, the fact that you pass through a modern housing estate to get to the village"
