Winklebury is a large suburb located two miles north-west of central Basingstoke. Until the late 1960s Winklebury was a collection of small holdings but Basingstoke's growth saw the area developed for housing.
Historically the area has some of the oldest landmarks in Basingstoke. It contains the remains of an iron age hill fort, now the site of Fort Hill Community School. A Roman road from Winchester to Silchester runs along the western boundary and is still in use.
Winklebury has a variety of amenities including three shopping areas, doctors surgery and a church and a large playing field. The playing field is also home to new development including football pitches, a football stand and offices for the Hampshire FA.
