Highclere is a village and civil parish situated in the North Wessex Downs in the Basingstoke and Deane district of Hampshire, England. It lies in the northern part of the county, near the Berkshire border. It is most famous for being the location of Highclere Castle, a noted Victorian house, in private ownership and the setting for numerous films and TV series, including Downton Abbey.The parish church of St Michael and All Angels sits between Highclere Castle and the main part of the village. This 'new' church replaced a much older church sited adjacent to Highclere Castle, and parish records go back to pre-Norman times. There is a pub, the Red House, a flourishing village hall and a private junior school, Thorngrove. The church parish is part of the North West Hampshire Benefice . The civil parish of Highclere has two wards, Highclere and Penwood."Highclere Holly" was first identified here and still flourishes in local woodlands.There is said to be a grampus living in a yew tree in the churchyard of the Highclere Estate Chapel.
