East Meon was chosen by the Hampshire Museum service in 1986 as ‘The Domesday Village’, because it still reflects the layout of the medieval settlement, with its magnificent norman church and Court Hall, where the Bishops of Winchester administered their largest Hampshire estate.

Michael Blakstad will describe life in medieval East Meon, the open fields where villeins farmed, and the hall houses in which they lived, the deer park where the bishops hunted, the fish ponds where fresh fish were bred exclusively for nobility, and the work of the parish vestry, the welfare state of its time.
