Located on the border with the New Forest Alderholt is a largely modern village with a 19th century church, pub and shops. A little outside of town lies an 18th century watermill, which is still used today to mill flour.
The name of Alderholt's railway station (no longer in existence) was changed to 'Daggons Road' soon after it opened in 1876 because it was often confused with Aldershot in Hampshire, with parcels and even soldiers arriving at the wrong destination!
Alderholt lies at the junction of three counties, the village saying was that a man standing in the stream (Ashford Water) in one county could lay his hands on the other two. The local squire, who owned property in all three counties, used to tell how he flushed a duck in Dorset, shot it in Hampshire and picked it up in Wiltshire!
