LOCAL history: To many, Chineham has only a recent history as a relatively new development and little is known about the area’s heritage. However, we do know that Chineham was first settled in the medieval period and there was once even a Roman road running through the parish on its way from Silchester to Chichester and a moated farm house, a replica of which is now part of the Farm View Drive retirement complex. A grant has been secured to create and install boards at relevant sites around the parish to highlight local history. A volunteer with a knowledge of – or interest in – local history is needed to help create them. Anyone interested is invited to contact assistant clerk Julia Johnston on 324345 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
