“Irstead Church, on the Ant. – Another picture perfect in chiara-oscuro. The small church of Irstead, dedicated to St. Michael, is in the Decorated style and is noticeable from the fact that William of Wykham was rector here in 1347. From Irstead he went to Winchester of which city he was Bishop from 1366 till his death in 1404. He founded Winchester College in 1378 and New College, Oxford, in 1380. The three cottages adjoining the river make excellent themes for canvas.”
