West Hanney is a village in northern Berkshire, three miles north of Wantage. West and East Hanney were formerly a single ecclesiastical parish of Hanney.[1]

West Hanney has but one public house, the Plough Inn. It had another called The Lamb, until the latter closed in 2008.

Parish church

The village had a parish church by the time of the Domesday Book in 1086 but the earliest part of the present Church of England parish church of Saint James the Great dates from about 1150.[1]

West Hanney House is a Georgian building completed in 1724 as the Rectory.[2]
