Corhampton Saxon Church – A History

The Saxon Church at Corhampton as it has never been seen before.
The Friends of the Saxon Church at Corhampton are creating an aerial film of the heritage of the Meon Valley. This is a short taster of the film that we are producing
To follow the progress of this project visit our aerial film partner’s website – Focus Business Communications

 The attached history of the Saxon Church at Corhampton (Corhampton Saxon Church History- 2014) is an update of an earlier version written by the Reverend John Hurst in the 1980s and updated and revised in 2000 by Chris Maxse, a member of the committee of the Friends of Corhampton Church, and a renowned historian of the Christian heritage of the Meon Valley

The attached version was produced in October 2013 by Peter O’Sullivan who is also a member of the committee of Friends of Corhampton Church and the community leader of the Saxon heritage programme in the Meon Valley.

The Church is located in the rural area of  Winchester Council; Winchester was in 1020 (when the Church was built) the capital of Saxon England.

The Church at Corhampton also now features on the Winchester Museum’s FaceBook page and website.
