The Parish and Church of St Nicholas Wickham
The Reverend Marcus Retallack, who retired as Rector of this Parish in April 1970, was a keen historian and did much to restore the ancient church of St. Nicholas. In 1959 he published a booklet entitled “Wickham (S. Hampshire) and its Church” and subsequently revised versions of this were produced as “The Parish Church of St. Nicholas, Wickham” by two of his successors, the Reverend Anthony Hulbert in 1975, and the Reverend Arnold Hirst in 1990. These publications form the basis of this booklet but some of the material has been re-ordered or re-worked and additions made to bring it up to date.
The illustration on the front cover was drawn by Audrey P. Hansford.
