IN THE MARKET-PLACE OF PETERSFIELD AND THE BUTSER CUTTING

IN THE MARKET-PLACE OF PETERSFIELD AND THE BUTSER CUTTING

Fifty-four miles along the road we enter Petersfield market-place. In the centre is a leaden statue, once gilt of William III presented by a former Member or the town. The church was originally built in the shape of a cross with a central tower-about the year 1100. A hundred years later the West tower was added, and later the central tower was taken down. Inside some of the best early Norman work in the county is to be seen over the chancel arch. On goes the road, and crosses the flank of Butser Hill by the deepest road cutting in England.
