Feature Sets

Burseldon almost appears an entirely Victorian church by Sedding in 1888, but conserving all of the medieval features that had survived alterations of 1828. This is essentially the W part of the nave walling, and probably part of the chancel also. The 13thc carved responds of the chancel arch also survive, but probably moved. The only Romanesque feature is the font.


Burseldon does not appear in the Domesday Book (the nearest settlement is Hound to the S, with Netley to the W). The church was a dependent chapel of Hamble-le-Rice, which was the parochial nave of Hamble Priory, a cell of Tiron Priory in France.
