Bramshill is a civil parish in the English county of Hampshire. Its name has become synonymous with the Police Staff College, Bramshill located in Bramshill House. Bramshill forms part of the district of Hart. It is bordered by the Rivers Whitewater, Blackwater and Hart and by the villages of Farley Hill, Eversley, Hazeley, Heckfield, Riseley and Swallowfield.
The population of Bramshill is around 100, but at the south end of the village Bramshill House is a Police College which has a transient population of its own.
Historically, Bramshill was an estate owned by the Lord of the Manor, residing at Bramshill House. The last incumbent was Lord Brockett, who sold the estate in 1952 to pay for death duties incurred on the death of his son. Until the sale of the estate, residents of Bramshill rented their houses very cheaply, the landlord being responsible for all repairs.
