Eversley is a village and civil parish in the Hart District in the northeast of the County of Hampshire, England. The village is located around 11 miles (18 km) northeast of Basingstoke and around 2.5 miles (4 km) west of Yateley. The River Blackwater, and the border with Berkshire, form the northern boundary of the parish.
The parish contains a number of hamlets: Eversley Village (sometimes called Eversley Street), Eversley Centre, Eversley Cross, Lower Common and Up Green. The historical parish also included Bramshill, now a modern civil parish largely covered by plantation forest, but also including the early 17th century Bramshill House. Eversley Centre and Eversley Cross (to the north of Yateley) are contiguous and constitute the main part of the village, whilst Eversley 'village' lies around 1 mile to the north on the A327 road towards Arborfield.
The churchyard is the burial-place of Charles Kingsley (1819-1875), author of Westward Ho! and The Water Babies, who for 35 years was rector of the parish.
