Tichborne is a village and civil parish 4 miles (6.4 km) east of Winchester in Hampshire, England.

History[edit]

In archaeology in the south of the parish within the South Downs National Park is a bell barrow, bowl barrow and regular aggregate field system immediately east of Ganderdown Farm,[3] a Scheduled Ancient Monument indicating Bronze Age inhabitation.

Manor[edit]

In AD 909 Edward the Elder granted the manor of Tichborne to Denewulf, Bishop of Winchester.[4] However, Tichborne is not recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086.

The Roman Catholic Tichborne family has held the manor since the 12th century. Tichborne House was built shortly after 1803[5] while a longstanding baronetcy (indicating the use of 'Sir') was held by the family. There was a notorious 19th-century legal case of the Tichborne Claimant, in which an English imposter, Arthur Orton, then living in Australia, claimed to be missing Tichborne family member Sir Roger Tichborne.

Other buildings[edit]

Almost all of the other buildings are clustered near each other and are listed buildings.[6] They include an Old Rectory[7] which may indicate chancel repair liability, the Chapel of St Margaret.[8] and Tichborne Park House.[9] Near Cheriton is the only Grade II* listed building, Sevington Farmhouse.[10] 1 mile (1.6 km) east of Alresford are a northern small street of cottages, Lady Croft Cottages and Seward's Bridge over the River Itchen and Watercress Line railway.

Parish church[edit]

The Church of England parish church of Saint Andrew has an 11th-century Saxo-Norman chancel that combines characteristically Saxon double-splayed windows with Norman flat buttresses[11] and has reached Grade I listed status.[12] The nave and two-bay arcades are Early English Gothic.[11] The north aisle is now railed off to form the Tichborne Chapel, with monuments to members of the manorial family.[11] It is rare in being dedicated as a Roman Catholic chapel within a pre-Reformation Anglican Parish Church.[13] The west tower was added in 1703 and is built of blue and red brick.[11] It has a ring of six bells cast between 1737 and 1887.[4]

Amenities[edit]

Tichborne holds a traditional charitable festival called the Tichborne Dole.

Alresford Golf Course,[14] founded 1890, covers much of the north-east, with greens highly rated on golfing websites.[15]

Nearby attractions include the National Trust garden at Hinton Ampner.

In September is the large agricultural and funfair Alresford Show at Tichborne Park.
