St BARTHOLOMEW’S, Hyde

St Bartholomew's Hyde is the 12th century parish church of Hyde, once a village now a suburb of Winchester. The church is situated opposite the remaining gatehouse of Hyde Abbey, founded in 1110 and dissolved in 1538/9. The church stands within what were the abbey’s precincts to serve the needs of its tenants and lay officials. It is a flint and stone building with a tower built in 1541 using stones from the demolished abbey; the church was much restored in the 19th century. A collection of capitals from the abbey is on display inside. Outside, at its eastern end, is a plain slab grave marking a collection of bones from six medieval individuals once thought to have included King Alfred of Wessex, Alswitha and their son King Edward.
