Crookham Village

Crookham Village has evolved around scattered ancient cottages, many of which are timber-framed. Agriculture and horticulture are important industries, and hops were grown and kiln-dried in the parish until 1974. Crookham was formerly noted for brick-making and potteries. A traditional Mummers play is performed in the village every Boxing Day.
