Mortimer West End is a village and civil parish in the Basingstoke and Deane District of Hampshire. At one time it was a tything and the Hampshire part of the cross-county parish of Stratfield Mortimer which was otherwise in Berkshire. It became an independent ecclesiastical parish in 1870 - the church of St Saviour having been built in 1854 - and a civil parish in 1894. The parish was transferred from the county of Berkshire to the county of Hampshire in 1879, producing the slight bulge in Hampshire's northern boundary.
