Soberton is a village in the Meon Valley, Hampshire, England, bordered by villages such as Newtown and Droxford. It is listed in the Domesday Book under its original name, "Sudbertone" or "Sudbertune", and comes under Winchester City Council.
Key features of Soberton include the War Memorial at its centre, the early 16th-century Church of St Peter and St Paul, and The White Lion, a 17th-century public house. The church is part of one of the largest parishes in the United Kingdom. The village was part of a well-established smuggling route during the 18th century, and a vault beneath the church was used for the storage of contraband.
