Titchfield Abbey is a medieval abbey, located in the village of Titchfield near Fareham in Hampshire, England. The abbey was founded in 1222 for Premonstratensian canons, an austere order of priests.
The inhabitants were devoted to scholarship, as shown by their very impressive library.

Titchfield was closed in 1537 by Henry VIII of England during the Dissolution of the Monasteries and the building was converted into a mansion by Thomas Wriothesley, a powerful courtier. Later in the sixteenth century the abbey was home to Henry Wriothesley, who was a patron of William Shakespeare. In 1781 the abbey was abandoned and partially demolished to create a romantic ruin. The remains were purchased by the government in the early twentieth century and are now a Scheduled Ancient Monument under the care of English Heritage who you can tell do a great job at caring for the ruin.

The builder of the abbey was Bishop Peter des Roches of Winchester, a powerful politician, churchman and government official who founded several religious houses, including Netley Abbey , Halesowen Abbey in Worcestershire and La Clarté-Dieu in his native France.

Bishop Peter held one of the richest bishoprics in the mediaeval church and so was in a position to be generous in the endowment of his new abbey. He not only gave the manor of Titchfield itself but also extensive lands dotted around Hampshire, and this property was expanded by major grants from local aristocrats and King Henry III (who also granted the monastery important legal privileges in 1231), with the result that Titchfield was placed on a firm financial footing from the beginning.

With stone hard to come by in the county of Hampshire, the abbey was built mainly using stone brought in from neighbouring Dorset, the Isle of Wight and even as far afield as Caen in France. The abbey buildings were centred around the church.

The episode is a must watch. We experienced wierd noises, and ended up capturing some strange activity. It's up to you as viewers to decide if you if it's paranormal or not. We're going to be posting a video highlight of the episode, which you can view if you haven't got time to watch the full 50 minute video, but we got to say it turned out to be one of our best investigation to date.

Thank You.
