Kelly’s Directory of Hampshire – 1939

Note that, although Bordon and Lindford left Headley parish in 1929, they are still included under Headley in Kelly's Directories after that date

HEADLEY is a 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 of Alton (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 I called "Dead Water" flows through the parish. Gas and Electricity are available. Water is supplied by the Wey Valley Water Co. The church of All Saints is an edifice of stone in the Decorated style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch, vestry and a square 12th century tower: 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 M.A. rector, 1848, until his death, 28 March, 1872: a new organ was placed in the church in 1885: new oak seatings were given in 1938: 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 1934 by the Rev. James Spencer Tudor-Jones M.A. of that college. In the village is a Congregational chapel erected in 1867, with 200 sittings, and at Lindford a Methodist chapel with 200 sittings; at STANDFORD are a Methodist chapel and an iron chapel for the brethren. The Village Institute, containing reading and recreation rooms, was erected in 1909. A Village Hall was given in 1925 by C. W. McAndrew esq. J.P. A Church Room was given anonymously in 1933. At Bordon are the kennels of the Royal Artillery Draghounds; Capt. W. D. Blacker and J. D. C. Ellison esq. are joint masters ; the pack comprises 25 couples of hounds; hunting days, Mondays and Fridays, fox hunting, and Thursdays, drag; Bordon, Kingsley and Headley are convenient centres; Bordon (S. R.) is the nearest station to the kennels. Headley Park, on the border of Woolmer Forest, is the seat of Gerald A. McAndrew esq. Standford Grange is the residence of Lt-Col George A Ledingham MC TD. The Ecclesiastical Commissioners are lords of the manor of Bishops Sutton: the War Department are lords of the manor of Broxhead Warren and Gerald A McAndrew esq is lord of the manor of Broxhead.
