Enham Alamein is a village and civil parish about 2½ miles north of Andover in the north of Hampshire, England. It was named Enham until 1945 and previously Lower Kings Enham.
There are three population areas, in order from north to south, now named Upper Enham (formerly Upper King’s Enham), Enham Alamein (formerly Lower Enham and earlier Lower King’s Enham) and Knight’s Enham.
Knight’s Enham is now part of the north edge of suburban spread of Andover About a kilometre south along the A343 road from the current site of Enham Alamein. This is a small collection of 3 or 4 houses and a Church with a first recorded date of 1241.
The village of Enham was one of the original “Village Centres” chosen for the rehabilitation of injured and war-disabled soldiers returning from the front line of World War I. Originally funded by King George V in 1919, the Village Centre became a hub for the care of these soldiers where they were retrained in new trades such as Basketry, upholstery, gardening services and other trades.
