Having grown up in Hook myself, it’s great to be selling houses in the area that I know and love so well. It’s also been fantastic to see how the village has evolved over the years, but the core reasons why people live in Hook have not changed at all. I have seen the village experience some development in that time, but the general feel is much the same.”

Until the 18th century only a few scattered farms could be found in the area, but small hamlets did not begin to appear until inns sprung up to serve travellers. Hook was located on the main London to Exeter stagecoach route. In the late eighteenth century a turnpike road was constructed to aid the navigation of the steep Scures Hill, to the west of the village. In 1883 Hook railway station was constructed, and the village began to grow with railway workers and commuters settling in Hook.[1]
