HEADLEY is large parish and village near the borders of Surrey and Sussex, 3 miles east from Bordon station on the Bordon and Bentley branch and 4½ miles north from Liphook station on the direct Portsmouth line of the Southern railway, and 8 miles south from Farnham, in the Petersfield division of the county, Alton hundred and rural district, petty sessional division (Whitehill sub-division), county court district and rural deanery of Farnham, archdeaconry of Surrey and diocese of Guildford. The air is remarkably dry and salubrious, and the water of great purity. The river Wey and a stream called "Dead Water" flow through the parish. The church of All Saints is an edifice of stone in the Decorated style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch, vestry and a square tower containing 2 bells: the walls were rebuilt and the chancel and vestry added in 1859: the stained east window is a memorial to the Rev. Joseph Ballantine Dykes MA rector, 1848, until his death, 28 March, 1872: an organ, costing about £300, was placed in the church in 1885: there are 350 sittings. The register dates from the year 1538. The living is a rectory, net yearly value £642, with residence, in the gift of the Provost and Fellows of Queen's College, Oxford, and held since 1929 by the Rev. Michael Ridley MA of that college.
