The Parish Church of St Nicholas, Brockenhurst, New Forest
The Parish Church of St Nicholas, Brockenhurst, New Forest
This is the Parish Church of Brockenhurst, reputedly the oldest in the New Forest. The notice board at the gate says that a church has existed on this hilltop site since about 800AD. The Norman builders in 1086 used some of the original Saxon walling as they raised the building. The church was enlarged by the Victorians but in the south wall of the old Nave there is some Saxon herring-bone masonry. The south doorway is a fine example of Norman work with chevron mouldings. The yew tree visible to the left of the tower is probably over 1000 years old.
