Micheldever village and the parish centre, is sited 4 miles to the north east of Winchester in Hampshire. This delightful piece of english local history was pieced together by local vicar Alfred Milner in the 1920's, and amongst many aspects, he records that the parish has the honour of having been the home of two Lord Chancellors of England - Hamulton, Chancellor to Edward I in 1285 and Wriothesley, Chancellor to Henry VIII in 1540.
