Headbourne Worthy, St Swithun, Hampshire, *

“This is principally an entry for ghosts. The Worthy (or ‘enclosure’) churches crowded the banks of the River Itchen. They were intended less for parishioners than for pilgrims approaching the shrine of St Swithun at Winchester, or leaving it along the Pilgrims’ Way to St Thomas’s Shrine at Canterbury. These were the spiritual motorway service stations of their day.”
