The village of Titchfield lies at the southern end of the lovely Meon Valley and mid-way between Portsmouth and Southampton. The valley and river get their name from the tribe of Jutes - the Meonwara - who settled in the area in the 5th/6th century. The church of St.Peter was founded in 680 and parts of this early building can still be found in the tower and west end of the nave. The majority of the church dates from the C12th & C13th and also the rebuilding of 1867. In 1232 the "White Canons" of the order Premontre founded Titchfield Abbey which came to dominate the village and surrounding area for the next 300 years. At the Dissolution in 1537 the Abbey was given to Thomas Wriothesley who rebuilt it into a private house -`Palace House` - he became the Earl of Southampton and was Henry VIII`s Chancellor and perhaps profited more from the Reformation than any other man. The 3rd Earl was the patron of William Shakespeare, a frequent visitor to Palace House. It was the Earl who built the sea wall across the mouth of the Meon which lead to the closure of the port at Titchfield. But he also built Mills, and ironworks, the Market Hall and Stoney Bridge. By the C18th the Wriothesley line had died out and the house was sold to the Delme family in 1741 but after the death of Peter Delme in 1770 they were infrequent visitors and the house fell into disrepair. The house is now an English Heritage site. The Market Hall fared a little better, it was moved from the square in 1810 to behind the Queens Head inn but by 1970 was in a poor state, it was acquired by the Weald & Downland Museum and moved to Singleton (Sussex) and has been fully restored. Today Titchfield is a bustling community rightly proud of their heritage, the Meon Valley provides some delightful walks and for the bird watchers the 369 acre Titchfield Haven Reserve has a wealth of wetland habitats.
