The Story of Droxford

Droxford Junior School’s “South Downs landscape” fused glass window by school pupils and Helen Thompson of Fantasia Glass

A South Downs village journey

Droxford is inextricably linked to the South Downs landscape. The prominence of the chalk downland; the fertility of the river valley; the potential for settlement; the obvious lines of access; the natural biodiversity; the equable climate; the ingenuity of local people - all these factors have shaped the journey taken by Droxford and its community over more than 1500 years.
