Grateley is a village and civil parish in the north west of Hampshire, England. The name is derived from the Old English grēat lēah, meaning 'great wood or clearing'. The village is divided into two distinct settlements, 0.75 miles (1.21 km) apart: the old village and a newer settlement built around the railway station on the West of England Main Line. The hamlet of Palestine adjoins the railway station settlement, although it is located in the civil parish of Over Wallop. King Æthelstan issued his first official law code in Grateley in about 930 AD.
