10 High Street is the former home of the Andover Advertiser, founded by John Russell Fox, who produced the first edition at this address on 1 January 1858.
The premises were rebuilt by the Fox family 10 years later, but in the same year a new proprietor took over. In 1876, the paper changed hands again, to James Charles Holmes. The Holmes family then ran the Andover Advertiser for 110 years, until 1986. Since then, the paper’s format has changed from broadsheet to tabloid.

The 15th Century Grade II listed White Horse Inn is situated in between the picturesque villages of Thruxton and East Cholderton in the heart of the Test Valley.
Unbelivably the concrete wall on the left of the picture is the A303 which passes 20 feet from the front door and 20 feet above the pub. You may have passed this pub on the way to the south west and never realised it was there!
