Petersfield, Hampshire, UK Market town found at the junction of the A3 from Portsmouth to London and the main road from Winchester to the south coast. Approximately 20,000 inhabitants but has grown rapidly in recent years due to its location (London commuter belt) and general good reputation as a 'nice place to live'. Main industries include an Estee Lauder factory and a fizzy drink (soda) bottling plant.
It also has a new shopping centre called Ramswalk which has a Waitrose about which there was a lot of controversy. In the summer the slightly aging population likes to go to Petersfield Heath where there is a lake and a golf course.

Petersfield has a full range of educational facilities for all ages. Briefly, they are:
Petersfield Infant School
Herne Junior School
Churcher's College
Bohunt School
Petersfield Comprehensive

I'm sure there are a couple more but I forget their names.
