TWO villages in Basingstoke and Deane feature in a national magazine in the top 50 most attractive places to live for commuters travelling to London.

Overton and Kingsclere appear on a map in Country Life magazine as part of a feature about the most attractive places to live if you want to be in London within an hour.

The magazine chose the towns, villages and small cities that boast a fast and regular train service to the capital.

Overton was chosen because of its wine merchant, deli, interior design shop and good village school, while Kingsclere was selected because of its high proportion of listed houses per square foot.
