A HOUSE which was once frequently visited by a former Prime Minister is on the market in Romsey.

The Victorian-era property, Hill House, on The Crescent, is being sold through Henshaw Fox, and is being sold for £925,000.

A keen fly-fisherman, Prime Minister Clement Attlee would often stay at Hill House when fishing The River Test and visiting his cousin, Bartram Waller Attlee who is believed to have lived in the home between 1927 to 1950. Bartram Attlee has a plaque in Romsey, commemorating his world record for the fastest time cycling 21 miles, 180 yards on a penny farthing.
