Historic Odiham became a market town serving surrounding villages during medieval times. Its castle was built by King John between 1207 to 1214 at a cost of more than £1,000. Halfway between Winchester and Windsor, it was from here that King John set out to seal the Magna Carta in 1215. RAF Odiham is home to the UK's Chinook helicopter force.
