A hamlet is a small human settlement which is typically situated in a rural location. Broadly, it is a settlement that has no central place of worship (i.e. a church) and no central meeting point for its residents (i.e. a village hall). It is the lack of these features that differentiates a hamlet from a village, as well as it generally being of a smaller size.
Hamlets can also be considered as a secondary settlement in a civil parish or as a satellite entity to a larger settlement.
Traditionally, many hamlets developed as a form of community that was based around some form of amenity or trade that supported its working population, such as a farm, mill, harbour or mine.
