Buses

Longparish still has a better bus service than many villages, but it is not much used. Hampshire County Council produces an indispensable guide to bus services called Connections, which is delivered free to every household each May and November. It includes current timetables for buses and trains.

All services through the village are run by Stagecoach Hampshire Bus, New Market Square, Basingstoke RG21 7HP tel. 01256 464501, and any problems should first be referred to them. If it cannot be resolved, contact The Passenger Transport Officer, Hampshire County Council, The Castle, Winchester SO23 8UD tel.0345 023067 (Calls charged at local rate. Answerphone out of hours)

The main service is the 61 which runs runs between Newbury and Winchester, via Highclere, Hurstbourne Tarrant, St. Mary Bourne, Smannell, Andover, Hurstbourne Priors, Longparish, Barton Stacey, Sutton Scotney, and South Wonston. The 61A at certain times runs between Andover and Winchester, stopping opposite Station Hill on the A303. In the early morning only, there is a 75 service bus from Whitchurch to Andover via Longparish, and in the evening there are 3 buses each way between Basingstoke and Andover which pass through Longparish. The current timetable is in the Directory.

There are stops at The Plough and North Acre and request stops at each end of Forton, opposite Mill Lane, and two in East Aston, opposite Orchard Cottage, and at Mills’ Corner.
