Vernham Dean[1] is a village and civil parish in the Test Valley district of Hampshire, England, just east of the Wiltshire border and south of the Berkshire border. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 523.

The village is about 9 miles north of Andover and 9 miles south of Hungerford in Berkshire.

In the village there is The George pub [2][3] run by James and Nicky Haigh and the Millenium Hall[4] which is used for a variety of community events and services and for private hire.

The village is served by the Vernham Dean Gillum's Church of England Primary School[5] and the Little Fingers Pre-school.[6]

There is a legend that Chute Causeway is haunted by a guilt-ridden pastor of Vernham Dean who left his villagers to die of the Black Death in 1665.[7]
