About this neighbourhood
Winklebury is a large suburb located two miles north-west of central Basingstoke. Until the late 1960s Winklebury was a collection of small holdings but Basingstoke's growth saw the area developed for housing. It has a mixture of social and private housing.
Historically the area has some of the oldest landmarks in Basingstoke. It contains the remains of an iron age hill fort, now the site of Fort Hill Community School a Roman road from Winchester to Silchester runs along the western boundary and is still in use.
Winklebury has a variety of amenities including three shopping areas, doctors surgery and a church and a large playing field. The playing field is also home to the headquarters for Hampshire FA with football pitches and stand. Nearby is the youth club which is open on a Tuesday and Thursday evening for the local Winklebury youths.
There are four schools in Winklebury including two primary schools, one secondary school and a school for Basingstoke's permanently excluded pupils.
The force responsible for policing and crime prevention in this area is Hampshire Constabulary.
