Abbey Remains
Titchfield Abbey. Founded by Peter des Roches, Bishop of Winchester, in 1232 and occupied by white canons of the Premonstratensian order for 300 years. Henry VI and Margaret of Anjou were married in the Abbey in 1445. At the Dissolution of the Monasteries Henry VIII gave the Abbey to Thomas Wriothesley, who converted it to a mansion known as Place House. The mansion was later owned by the Delme family who abandoned it circa 1780 when they moved to Cams Hal, which they enlarged using building materials from Place House which was largely demolished. The remains now consist mainly of the Gatehouse which has large four-storey castellated turrets flanking a three-storey main part with canted oriel windows on upper floors and four centred archway with original doors on ground floor. The upper part of the west front is built in Tudor brick, consisting of crow-stepped gable and chimneys on octagonal stacks. The best surviving feature of the Abbey is the entrance to the Chapter House, and many C.13 tiles remain in the Cloister and elsewhere. Ref: 1. VCH Vol 3, pp.222-3. Ref: 2.
