The soil is generally strong, resting upon clay, but in the higher grounds is of a sandy nature; the surface is undulated, and in some parts rises into considerable elevation. The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £12. 7. 3½., and in the patronage of the Crown; the tithes have been commuted for £725, and there is a glebe of 60 acres. The church, chiefly in the early English style, was built in 1838. On a common called the Churt or East Churt, is Holmbury, a large camp supposed to be of Roman construction.'[1]
