Nightlife
Droxford is a village in Hampshire, England, lying in the Meon valley, and lies around 3+3/4mi east of Bishop's Waltham within the new South Downs National Park. The A32 passes through the village between Gosport and Alton. Local amenities include a post office, two garages, two pubs and a village hall.Droxford is first recorded in history when the Manor of Drocenesforda (Droxford) was granted to the Prior and monks of St. Swithun, Winchester, by King Egbert in 826. In 939 king Æthelstan granted 17 hides of land at Droxford to his half-sister Eadburh. By the time of the Domesday Survey Droxford had passed to the Bishop of Winchester, to support the monks. This arrangement continued until 1551 when it was surrendered to the crown and it was passed on to the Earl of Wiltshire.The Bishopric regained the manor in 1558 and then held it until the Civil War. During the rule of Parliament the manor was transferred into private hands but on the Restoration of King Charles II it was, again, restored to the Bishopric.
