A genuine working village, Overton combines rural charm with the unusual status of being an ‘industrial’ village. The former Portal paper mill is nowadays home to the De La Rue factory which prints currency, and is a major local employer. A large, bustling village, Overton has a full range of amenities complemented by a range of clubs and societies. A highlight in the village’s social calendar is the annual Sheep Fair.
