Just four miles away from Bishop's Waltham is the picturesque village of Wickham. Set around an unusual medieval square with graceful Georgian buildings, it has its own water meadows and is a good place for a stroll, or to browse the interesting shops.
Wickham enjoys a superb location in the heart of the Meon Valley, dating back to at least Roman times, the town shares a rich history with the other settlements in the beautiful Meon Valley. The wide High Street is lined with many fine examples of Georgian architecture, creating a central focus for the village's commercial and social life. Good eateries, interesting shops and the ancient Church of St Nicholas make it well worth a visit.
From Wickham the Meon River starts the last part of its journey to the sea where it flows out into the eastern Solent at the Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve.
For more information about Wickham visit the Wickham Parish Council website or St Nicholas Parish Church website.
