    6 Quirky Facts About Whitchurch

    1. Salvation
      In 1889 a group of the Salvation Army were prosecuted for obstructing the highways and causing a disturbance by playing in The Square at Whitchurch. Salvationists from across the region marched on Whitchurch and over 800 gathered in The Square in protest when trouble flared again. 80 of the protestors were arrested and charged with “riot, unlawful assembly and rout”. Fearing they wouldn’t get a fair trial in Winchester, the ‘rioters’ successfully appealed for the case to be heard in the High Court. In 1890 the High Court ruled in their favour and several laws were passed allowing peaceful and orderly public demonstrations in England. A plaque can be seen in The Square today, commemorating their victory.
    2. There ain’t no party…
      …like an annual Potato Day party! And it’s not just potatoes. This tasty event shines a light on all kinds of veg with stalls, talks, advice and tasters of everything from onions and shallots to beans, beetroot and of course the noble spud. It even draws representatives from the National Vegetable Society. Kids get in free and even get given a free coloured potato. “How do you like them pomme de-tere?”
    3. White Church
      Unsurprisingly the town’s name derives from ‘Witcerc’ and means ‘white church’. It is thought that at one point the town probably had a church painted white using chalk from the South Downs. While Whitchurch is certainly special, the name is not so unique, in fact there are more than 10 Whitchurch’s across the UK.
    4. Early Days
      The first record of Whitchurch dates to 909AD but excavations have unearthed evidence of Iron Age and Roman settlements. In October 1987 a local metal detecting club discovered a hoard of Iron Age coins, over 100 in total, which included British and Gallo/Belgic coins.
    5. My Haven’t You You Haven’t Grown
      The Domesday Book of 1086 records Whitchurch as having; 54 villagers, 82 smallholders, 33 slaves, 26 acres of meadow Woodland, swine render, 5 mills and 1 church. By 1861, the town had a population of 5,522 and 1,209 houses. The census of 2011 shows the town has actually got smaller and with a population (at that time) of 4,676.
    6. How Rude!
      In 1888 the Daily Star (then just ‘The Star’) reported on Whitchurch, “Whitchurch is in Hampshire. People who live in it call it a town. People who live out of it call it a village. It is about as big as a good-sized pocket-handkerchief. It has three shops and 19 public houses.” Bit rude.
