History of Micheldever
A B Milner 2020


This edition of Milner’s History of Micheldever is dedicated to Peter Lampard Clarke (1945–2020) who did much for the local history of the Dever Valley before his untimely death on the eve of the publication of his book Parsons & Prawns, published to celebrate the 180th anniversary of the opening of Micheldever Station. Peter read Law and Divinity at King’s College, London, and qualified as a solicitor. He reached a senior position in BAT Industries PLC, before retiring to live for more than 20 years with his wife Jane in Wonston. His Dever & Down: A History of the Villages In and Around the Dever Valley in Hampshire is a standard work. He was a pillar of strength in the local church and a licensed lay worship leader. Despite being injured in the Hither Green crash in 1967 (when 49 died) he had a lifelong interest in railways and volunteered to support the local Watercress Line when he and Jane moved to Alresford in 2012
