Church of St James, Bossington, Hampshire

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:22 pm by Aleksan

The little Church of St James at Bossington where my parents got married, and where I was Christened 73 years ago. My maternal grandparents and my Aunt Dorothy are buried here together with men and women who worked with them at Bossington Farm, and Florey the Gypsy – as a child I used to visit her in her caravan. St James is on the Pilgrim route to Sant Iago de Compostella, and there are images of a Scallop inside. Henry the 5th camped here with his Army in the meadow opposite the Church the day before embarking for France at Southampton. The ancient Roman road from Winchester to Sarum is at the other side of this field and then passes through Bossington Farm.
