North Camp is a suburb of Farnborough, Hampshire. It covers most of the southern part of the town.

History[edit]

North Camp has been closely linked to both Aldershot and Farnborough for much of its existence. It was originally the Northern Camp of Aldershot Garrison, which was divided by the Basingstoke Canal, hence the name North Camp.[1]

Shopping[edit]

North Camp has a number of specialist shops[2] and services including a motorcycle shop and several specialist food and clothes shops.[3] The nearby town centres of Farnborough and Aldershot have much larger shopping areas, with a higher number of major chain stores.

Transport[edit]

The main roads within North Camp include:

  • A325 linking North Camp to Farnborough and Aldershot.
  • A3011 (Lynchford Road) which leads towards Ash Vale and Mytchett.

The area is also bordered by the A331 which leads to Guildford and Reading.

It is also served by school bus route 401, operated by Stagecoach to All Hallows School.
