ABOUT WHITCHURCH VILLAGE
The village of Whitchurch dates back to the Anglo-Saxon period, a small village community of farmers, tradesmen and labourers along with local cottage industries - pillowlace making and straw plaiting.
A Silk making factory in Little London, brick and tile kilns on Bushmead Rd, and even coal mining have come and gone in the village over the years, but the historic core of the village has been well-preserved.
The Bolebec name has been associated with Whitchurch since the wake of the Norman Conquest, when William I granted Whitchurch to Walter de Bolebec, a distant relative of the King. After the Civil war known as the Anarchy, it is recorded that Hugh II de Bolebec, Lord of Whitchurch, (illegally) constructed Bolebec Castle in 1147.
The Remains of Bolebec Castle form a significant part of the Whitchurch landscape, and there is also local speculation it was once a prehistoric hillfort, although there hasn’t been any archaeological evidence to support that claim (yet!)
ABOUT BOLEBEC MEAD
The Bolebec Mead development will provide twenty-one additional homes to Whitchurch.
Construction of Phase I, the terraced properties along Bushmead Road, is underway, and due for completion early next year.
Phase I of the development will be coming to market soon, consisting of six terraced three bedroomed homes fronting Bushmead Rd.
Pricing is still being finalised, but we estimate Phase 1 properties to come on the market starting at £370,000 early next year. Registration for Phase I is now open.
Phase II will be a mix of semi-detached 3-beds, and 4 & 5 bed detached homes backing onto the open fields to the North.
Construction is due to commence early next year.
We are collecting details from interested parties in advance of their expected launch in 2020.
