There are very few places in Hampshire which have associations of as much interest as those of Kingsclere. Many kings, Saxon, Norman, and Plantagenet, have left their marks upon its history, and at least six monastic and religious houses were endowed at one time or other with its lands and tithes, one of which was the metropolitan church of Normandy, the Cathedral of Rouen. If the visit of the Hampshire Field Club should awaken an interest in this parish so as to induce some one fully to write its history it will have fulfilled one of its objects.
