The Wallops[edit]

Together the villages of Over Wallop, Middle Wallop and Nether Wallop are known as The Wallops and run in a line roughly North to South following the line of the Wallop Brook, which has its source in Over Wallop.

Middle Wallop airfield[edit]

To the East of the villages the area is dominated by the Middle Wallop airfield, home to the Army Air Corps, a branch of the British Army. It supposedly was the site of a battle between certain Vitalinus, possibly Vortigern, and Aurelius Ambrosius.[citation needed]
