Waterlooville is a town in Hampshire, England, approximately 8 miles north of Portsmouth.The town has a population of about 20,000 and is surrounded by Purbrook, Blendworth, Cowplain, Lovedean, Clanfield, Catherington, Crookhorn, Denmead, Hambledon, Horndean and Widley. It forms part of the South Hampshire conurbation. The town formed around the old A3 London to Portsmouth road.Waterlooville is twinned with Maurepas, Yvelines in France and Henstedt-Ulzburg in Germany.HistoryLegend has it that it was named after the pub that stood at the centre of the village, then known as Wait Lane End where the stage coach horses waited to change places with the team that pulled the coach up and over Portsdown Hill. The Heroes of Waterloo was so named because, on its opening day, in 1815, soldiers who had just disembarked at Portsmouth, returning from the Battle of Waterloo, decided to stop there and celebrate their victory. According to local legend, many of them settled there. The public house was renamed in their honour and the area around the pub became known as Waterlooville.
