Whitchurch is a town in Hampshire, England. It gets on the River Test, 13 miles (21 km) south of Newbury, Berkshire, 12 miles (19 km) north of Winchester, 8 miles (13 km) eastern of Andover and also 12 miles (19 km) west of Basingstoke. Much of the town is a Conservation Area. As a result of the amount of wild animals in and also near the River Test, its program as well as financial institutions are designated as Site of Special Scientific Interest. The West of England Main Line connects the community's train station to London, and 2 main roads bypass the community (the A34, a significant north-- southern course, as well as the A303, a major east-- west course). The population is 8,962. The community is a growing neighborhood with a combination of residential areas and also some light industry, and works as a little traveler town to London (around 60 miles to the eastern) and also to a lower extent Basingstoke and Andover. Newbury as well as Winchester, whilst close by, can not be reached by rail without considerable detour (since the closure of Whitchurch Community train station in 1960) therefore travelling to these areas is mostly by cars and truck. Lynch Hill Park, a tiny housing development, was used in a TV advert for Roysters crisps as a result of its "regular" American look. The centre of the town is a roundabout referred to as The Square.
