Middle Wallop is a village in Hampshire, on the A343 road. The village has a public house, The George Inn, a petrol station as well as The Wallops Parish Hall.

The Wallops

Together the villages of Over Wallop, Middle Wallop and Nether Wallop are known as The Wallops and run in a line roughly North to South following the line of the Wallop Brook, which has its source in Over Wallop. True to its name, Middle Wallop lies across the parish boundary between Over Wallop and Nether Wallop.

Middle Wallop airfield

To the East of the villages the area is dominated by the Middle Wallop airfield, home to the Army Air Corps, a branch of the British Army. It supposedly was the site of a battle between certain Vitalinus, possibly Vortigern, and Aurelius Ambrosius.
