The parish, which is of small extent, is situated on a branch of the river Test, and on the road from Salisbury to Southampton. It is wholly agricultural. A third of the parish is unenclosed common, the remainder good arable, pasture, and meadow. A stream which has its rise in this parish flows into the Southampton Water.
