The village has expanded rapidly since 2015 with several new roads and house building. In October 2017 Test Valley Council approved another 520 homes to be built in the village.
The only church in the village now stands empty. It started as the Harroway Mission. It was named after the Whitchurch to Andover road that ran through Picket Piece to Andover. When the Walworth Industrial Estate was built in the 1960s, that stretch of the road was renamed Walworth Road.
The Mission was built by the Congregational (now the United Reformed Church) in Andover. It last appeared in the United Reform Church yearbook in 2001.
