We living and working in Dorset & Hampshire

We have been in business since 1986 and have travelled to all corners of the British Isles, mainly to install voice and data networks but also to resolve complex IT and security issues for our wonderful clients, including an overnight round trip to Glasgow to fix a broken PC that just needed plugging in!

They say that home is where the heart is, well our home is right on the border between Dorset and Hampshire and so we love both, from quaint and quiet villages and the peaceful New Forest to the historic docks and the busy towns and cities all right here on our doorstep including Catherington.

We always like to use small local businesses rather than large national and international companies where we can, and encourage others to do the same, the benefits are manyfold, with some obvious but many you may not have really thought about.

Catherington is a village in the East Hampshire district of Hampshire, England. It is 1 mile (1.8 km) northwest of Horndean. The village is also close to Cowplain and Clanfield. It is situated about 10 miles north of Portsmouth and eight miles south of Petersfield, in the very south of the district of East Hampshire. It has a semi-rural character. Catherington is within the new boundaries of Horndean parish. Catherington is not a very large village and has an approximate population of 3900 (estimated 1998). The village is a conservation area.

The name of Catherington is derived from Cateringatune or.

The village lies at the top of a hill and is similar to its pre-19th century layout in a linear pattern, with buildings either side of Catherington Lane, the main road in the village. The church in the village is the oldest building in Catherington and dates to the mid 12th century. There are several listed buildings in the village. In 1838 there were three working farms in the village and many of the farm buildings still exist, including a listed Granary building erected in 1820 on the west side of Catherington Lane. There are two Georgian era mansions in the village (St Catherines and Catherington House). The current vicarage was built in 1880, replacing an earlier building.

Catherington is in the East Hampshire constituency for elections to the House of Commons. Prior to Brexit in 2020, it was represented by the South East England constituency for the European Union parliament.

The village has a medieval church, All Saints Church, which is mid 12th century in origin. The church was restored in 1883 by Edmund Ferrey (son of Benjamin Ferrey). The church contains a notable tomb monument to Sir Nicholas Hyde and his wife which occupies the east end of the north chapel. In the churchyard is the tomb of Admiral Sir Charles Napier and a monument to another Admiral, Sir Christopher Cradock, as well as the tomb of Edmund Kean, an actor who had a house in Horndean (some of his later family paid the restoration of the church in the late 19th century).

The church has an early 14th century painting of the Psychostasia on the wall of the nave.

Attached to the church is a hall, and there is a public house, The Farmer Inn. The Farmer public house was rebuilt in the 1920s following a fire.

The main community centre of Catherington is the Church Hall (used by the Scouts).

There is a pond in the village and there is a car park in the village for access to Catherington Down.

In 2021, the village held an inaugural craft fair.

The village is just west of the A3 road.

There is a primary school in the village, Catherington C of E Infant School. The school was originally built in 1851 for girls and infants but became a primary school in 1939 and then again at infant school in 1994.

Kingscourt School is a private school in the village. Kingscourt School occupies Catherington House, once the family home of Admiral Samuel Hood mentor to Nelson) who commissioned the house in 1771. In 2021, land clearance nearby to the school revealed extensive evidence of pre-19th century farm buildings, previously owned by another admiral Admiral Sir Roger Curtis and family.
