Palestine is a village which lies in the civil parish of Over Wallop, approximately 7 miles (11 km) south-west of Andover, in Hampshire, England.

Palestine

It consists mainly of fields, farms and a few dozen houses (about 200 residents). Most houses are built in a bungalow style.

The main roads are Streetway Road, Mount Hermon Road and Mount Carmel Road.

The settlement adjoins the village of Grateley, which has a railway station with hourly South Western Railway trains to London Waterloo and Salisbury, half hourly in peak times.

The parish boundary runs down the centre of Streetway Road, meaning that when a new housing development was built on the north side of the road, the residents on the south side could not officially object, as the development was within a different parish.[1]
