"HECKFIELD, a parish in the upper half of the hundred of Holdshott, county Hants, 8 miles from Reading, and 5 N.W. of Winchfield, its post town and railway station. It contains the tythings of Heckfield and Holdshott, and the chapelry of Mattingley. It is situated on the road from Reading to Odiham, and comprises a large tract of common. The soil is a gravelly sand, alternated with clay in the lower grounds. The Whitewater here forms a junction with the river Loddon, and the river Blackwater skirts the north-western boundary. Nearly one-half of Strathfieldsaye Park, the seat of the Duke of Wellington, is within the limits of this parish. "
