  • A group of maps of the post-1974 municipal districts or boroughs of Hampshire on Wikipedia Commons
  • Parishes in the Alton Hundred of Hampshire and the Farnham Hundred of Surrey have been omitted from the Victoria County Histories. This may be because they were set up later than the other hundreds.
