Tichbourne St Andrew


The Parish

The parish of Tichborne lies in central Hampshire about 6 miles east of the city of Winchester. Tichborne is a relatively small village built along the western banks of the River Itchen, a narrow lane follows the river and most properties are along or near that lane. Tichborne lies about a mile south of the A31 road which connects Winchester with Alton. The area about Tichborne is underlain with chalk making poor arable soils hence pastoral farming would have been the major economic activity. The River Itchen drains northwards, westwards and then south to reach the English Channel through the port of Southampton. Tichborne is sited at around 70 metres above the sea in gently rolling chalk downland, the Itchen lies some 10 metres lower whilst local heights rise to just over 100 metres to the south of the village. Downland parishes are traditionally large and Tichborne would have covered an area of around 3,000 acres and supported a population of just under 350 parishioners. There is no specific mention of Tichborne in Domesday Book.

The Church

St Andrew's church lies uphill to the west of the main lane through the village. The church is very early with Saxo-Norman features indicative of an 11th century origin. The chancel is clearly datable to the this period showing Saxon double-splays to the windows. The nave and two-bay arcades are later and in the Early English Gothic style of the 13th century. The contrasting brick western tower is much later having documentary dating evidence of completion in 1703. The church is accessed along Church Lane, a dead-end road which leaves the lane adjacent to a pretty thatched cottage, at the end is space for a car or two. Access is than by foot along a gravel track through a wooden gateway. The churchyard is surrounded with trees but there are adequate views for photography despite some restrictions.
