Up Nately is a small village in Hampshire, England. Its nearest railway station is in Hook, three miles to the east of the village. The Basingstoke Canal runs through the village to the north, which soon ends at Greywell.

History[edit]

Originally part of Mapledurwell, it was created as a separate estate in the early part of the 12th century, when it was granted to the Cistercian Abbey of Tiron in France by Adam de Port.[1] It was sequestered by Edward III as it was an abbey that owed allegiance to a foreign power. It was bought in 1391 by William of Wykeham, Bishop of Winchester who then bestowed it on the newly founded College of Winchester.[2]

Governance[edit]

The village of Up Nately is part of the civil parish of Mapledurwell and Up Nately[3] (where the 2011 Census was included) and is part of the Basing ward of Basingstoke and Deane borough council.[4] The borough council is a Non-metropolitan district of Hampshire County Council.

St Stephen's Church[edit]

St Stephen's Church includes a memorial to Alfred James Clark. Clark had joined the Army in 1914. In 1916, the hospital where he had been a patient was bombed. When erected, the memorial was unusual, being the second such one-man memorial in the UK.[5]

The altar cloth has a mysterious inscription to the fallen of the Great War. It lists sixteen names of servicemen who are from different regiments, different parts of the country, and who died in different places. The association between them is unclear.[5]

The churchyard contains the war graves of Frank Evans[6] and Alan Sidney Woodbridge.[7]
