Hartley Wintney features a wide main street with the village green and duck pond at the southern end. Its cricket green is home to the oldest cricket club in Hampshire and is next to another picturesque duck pond. Oak trees were planted on the common in response to a call following the Battle of Trafalgar for more timber to build naval ships.
