Its origins date back to the Saxon period. The original boundary stones are visible at the junction of Green Lane and Green Cross Lane. The village of churt is recorded as being part of the "Great Sacks" that belonged to the Bishop of Winchester. Frensham Great Pond, dug to provide the Bishop of Winchester, Hædde, with fresh fish, is the north border. Both the great and little pond were emptied during the world wars as they were landmarks usuable by enemy bombers.
