Micheldever, Hampshire

Micheldever is a village in Hampshire, England, situated 6 miles north of Winchester. It lies upon the River Dever. The river, and village, formerly part of Stratton Park, lie on a Hampshire grass downland, underlain with chalk and flint. Parts of the river now disappear in summer through lack of replenishment, evaporation and, more specifically, the porous nature of the bedrock. Micheldever Parish is the most northerly in the borough of The City of Winchester.
