Boldre - the "Bouvre" of the Domesday Book (1086).

The Hundred of Boldre figures large in the Domesday Book; there is no mention of a church, although this does not preclude the existence of one. The present church was started in 1100, the tower was added in 1697 but the church was completely rebuilt in 1855. There is evidence of habitation here during the Stone Age - implements; Bronze Age - barrows; and in Roman times - coins found at Norley wood.
