Hatch Warren

Hatch Warren is a district and ward of Basingstoke in Hampshire, west of the town centre. Neighbouring housing estates include Kempshott and Brighton Hill. It is primarily served by Brighton Hill Community College (a secondary school) and two junior schools, St Mark's and Hatch Warren.

It lies within the Hatch Warren & Beggarwood ward of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.

Hatch Warren shares a Newsletter, the Rabbiter, with Beggarwood and Kempshott Park, and has a small retail park, which includes a supermarket and a petrol station. It also has one pub which is named 'The Portsmouth Arms.' The Pub was due to open in 1996, but was destroyed by arson. It did however open a year later.

It occupies part of the farm which was the home and head office of Rex Paterson, the noted agriculturalist, when it was part of the estate of the Earls of Portsmouth.

    But it thought no bed too narrow—it stood with lips askew
    And shook its great head sadly like the abstract Jew.
    —Robert Penn Warren (1905–1989)

    He looked at Senator Hatch and said, “I’m going to make her cry. I’m going to sing ‘Dixie’ until she cries.” And I looked at him and said, “Senator Helms, your singing would make me cry if you sang ‘Rock of Ages’.”
