Welcome to Soberton Parish Council

The Parish of Soberton and Newtown covers approximately 2,400 hectares (9 square miles) and has a total population approaching 1,600. The countryside contains a mixture of agricultural land, down land, forest and water meadows.

The three main villages within the Parish, Soberton, Soberton Heath and Newtown together with the smaller settlements of Grenville Hall, Hoe Gate, Hundred Acres, Woodend and Kingsmead mostly lie in a dispersed linear pattern stretching along the Meon Valley for about 5 miles.

The northern section of the Parish and the Forest of Bere are in the boundaries of the South Downs National Park.

St Clair's Meadow

Earlier this month with the agreement of the Trust a film company who uses drones, recorded images of the water meadows in flood. This shows the meanders of the river and the sections that were used for extending the grazing season for sheep by shallow submersion. I attach the link and hope you find it interesting. The Trust have the rights to the images but have agreed that we can share them with friends and supporters locally.
