Oakwood Infant School is situated in the village of Hartley Wintney in North East Hampshire. This beautiful, rural village has a wealth of history and is surrounded by idyllic countryside. The village grew prosperous as a main road village, first as a stopping place from London to the Royal Palace at Odiham and then as a coach stop on theLondon-Exeter Road, the A30. It is now known as a centre for the antique trade and is the proud possessor of one of the oldest cricket greens in England. Cricket has been played in this superb setting for over 200 years.
The parish has a population of approximately 5,000 people, and includes Phoenix Green to the south and the adjoining hamlets of Dipley, West Green, Elvetham and Hartfordbridge. There are large wooded areas such as Yateley Heath Wood and part of Hazeley Heath as well as large expanses of common land with the famous Mildmay Oaks at its centre.
Despite its rural location around 40 miles from Central London, Hartley Wintney benefits from superb transport links, being within a few miles of the M3 and easy access to the M25 motorway. The village is served by Winchfield train station, which is just over a mile away.
