Visit Whitchurch and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Whitchurch, Hampshire is about 1 mile West of Laverstoke and used to be a busy place in coaching days. Charles I chose to spend the night here before the second battle of Newbury in 1644. The church, which was restored in Victorian times, contains some outstanding treasures. There is an Anglo-Saxon gravestone here, which was used for years as a convenient stand by the bell ringers. Probably 9th-century, the Latin inscription reads: “Here lies the body of Frithburga, buried in peace.” Above is the bust of Christ. Frithburga may have been a nun from Wher Well. There is also a 17th-century panel showing the Commandments and biblical scenes, and a remarkable set of steps leading to the belfry. Each step is a single block and the surrounding walls are of wood.
Just outside the town is Hurstbourne Park. Kingsley once said that he considered the park here to be the finest in England.
