The Village Booklet on Bishop’s Waltham (Ref VB061) explores this historic market town that has links to great, good, and not so good characters that mark a thousand years of Hampshire history. Since its sacking by the Danes, through to the capture of it’s palace by Cromwell’s army, Bishop’s Waltham has often been at the epicentre of major Hampshire events.

Along with a useful map showing Bishop’s Waltham and its contiguous settlements, are descriptions of the places of worship, past and present. Surnames of Bishop’s Waltham inhabitants are sprinkled throughout, from school master and inn keeper to landowner; and sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories are explored. A great resource for those seeking out connections to this part of Hampshire.
