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 Priors Dean.
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.
Did You Know?
Priors Dean is a hamlet in the Hampshire Downs about 3 miles (5 km) west of Liss and about 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Petersfield, Hampshire, England. It is a deserted medieval village first mentioned in the 1100s. Since 1932 it and Colemore have been in a single civil parish of Colemore and Priors Dean. The nearest railway station is at Liss.
The village first shows some signs of settlement in the neolithic with flint tools and pottery found in the vicinity of the village. Bronze Age Burial mounds also lie to the north east of the Church.
Roman pottery and other finds were also whilst field walking in the 1970s and 1980s although not in a large enough quantity to suggest settlement.
The village is first mentioned during the reign of Henry 2 in 1154-1189 as Dene deriving from the Old English denu meaning valley. The village came under the possession of the Southwick Priory in 1203 giving it its prefix. The main site of archaeological importance in the village is the deserted medieval village whose extent is not completely known, but likely covers the immediate area around the Church. No full investigation of the site has been done as to date and hence the reason for desertion is unknown. East Hampshire has a large number of abandoned villages, some abandoned during the 1300s thanks to the plague, and others due to more peaceful means like water access difficulties like Abbotstone. Neighbouring Colemore was also abandoned and hasn't seen archaeological investigation either.
The small church which now stands alone is all that is left of the medieval village. Its origins are in the early norman period around 1120 30 or potentially 11th-century; either late Saxon or early Norman of which some architectural details still remain. For example the sandstone entrance has a typical 12th Century zig-zag decoration. The church has no known dedication. Medieval details are well preserved like the 13th and 14th century windows on the south wall the first of which has been long since filled in.
The church was restored in 1856, when the Norman revival chancel arch was built and the bell turret and spire were added. Inside the church are several 17th-century monuments. It is a Grade II* listed building.
Priors Dean has two manor houses. Priors Dean Manor House, opposite the church, is a 17th-century brick building with 18th-, late 19th- and early 20th-century alterations. Goleigh Manor House, just over 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Priors Dean, was built in 1479.
