north waltham

"North Waltham is an ancient and delightful village, owned by the Bishop of Winchester in medieval times, its sleepy life as an agricultural village was to change dramatically after the estate was split up in 1964. Richard's narrative takes us through this story, describing people and places through the years, explaining the farming, the role of the church and the development of the school. Carefully researched and referenced, it uses primary evidence as it moves into the 20th century, taking us right up to 2012.

If it wasn't for Richard Tanner the history of our local villages could well be lost forever. I commend 'North Waltham' to everyone. It is a fascinating insight into our local community and our heritage."
Dame Mary Fagan, Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire
