Winslade is a hamlet and civil parish in the Basingstoke and Deane District of Hampshire. It lies 3 miles (5 km) south of Basingstoke and covers an area of 712 acres (2.88 km2). The parish is at the foot of a wooded hill with the A339 road running through it.

The manor of Winslade has stayed in the same family ever since 1086. (Source: Victoria County History of Hampshire, volume 4)

"Winslade and Kempshott were distinct parishes—each with a parish church of its own —until 1393, in which year the patron of the two churches, John de Tichborne, directed a petition to the Bishop of Winchester praying that by reason of their poverty the parishes might be united....The bishop accordingly decreed the union of the churches on 26 August 1393." (Source: ibid)
