About 2 miles south west from Alresford is the hamlet of Tichborne just across the water meadows from infant river Itchin from which the village gets it`s name. To the west of the village is the church of St.Andrews, it has a Saxon chancel with rare double-splayed windows, the reminder of the church dates from the 12th & 13th centuries in the north aisle is a Roman Catholic chancel it was built in 1336 for the Tichbourne family who even through the Refermation continued to worship and continue to do so. The church is one of only two (the other being Arundel) that is used for worship by both Protestants and Roman Catholics. The Tichborne Dole is distrubited each Lady Day (25th March) to the villages of Tichborne and Cheriton and consists of bags of flour. The Dole dates from the 12th century when Lady Mabella, wife of Sir Roger Tichborne, concerned at the plight of the poor estate workers begged Sir Roger to distribute the value of a small pottion of land for the needy, Sir Roger offered as much land as his crippled and bed-ridden wife could crawl round. Lady Mabella rose from her bed and managed to cover an area of nearly 23 acres; this area is still known as the "Crawls". The Tichbourne family fourtunes dwindled in the 19th century with expensive lawsuits over the claim by Arthur Orton, a London butcher, to be the missing heir to the estate - young Sir Roger was presumed lost at sea in 1854 - Orton lost and was sentenced to 14 years in prison. The thatched Tichborne Arms a quintesential village pub, the water meadows and watercress beds all adding to Tichbourne`s air of timelessness.
