Tag Archives: East Meon
Some of the pitchas from East Meon, a beautiful little village in Hampshire about 3 miles from Clanfield. It’s a very sleepy and picturesque place, there’s a thousand year old church in the village and a couple of lovely pubs. We had lunch in the Izaak Walton where we had a below average plowman’s and a Bowman’s Ale – I can’t remember which one.
East Meon was mentioned in the Domesday Book and even featured in the English Civil War – the Parliamentarians camped outside the village before the Battle of Cheriton.
During the WWII the Luftwaffe dropped 38 high explosive bombs and approximately 3,500 incendiaries on the Parish – stupidly they only managed to kill a pig.
