Sister cities of Swanmore
Swanmore is a small rural village and civil parish situated in the Meon Valley, Hampshire, England. It is very near to Bishop's Waltham.
Swanmore was originally set up to provide homes for workers in local brickworks. As such, the houses in the village are mainly early- and mid-Victorian brick buildings, although there are some older houses, especially in the hamlet of Upper Swanmore 1/4 mile north of the main village. The village continued to thrive after the closure of these brickworks, and at one time had many shops and services in the village, however many of these closed with the advent of easier transport to nearby towns, but Swanmore does still boast a village shop, post office, butcher and hairdresser. Swanmore is notable for the high occurrence of pampas grass on display in residents' gardens.
Hill Place is a grade II listed Georgian country villa located in the parish.
