Marwell Hall, Hampshire

Historical Description

Marwell Hall, a seat in Owslebury parish, Hants, 3½ miles SSE of Winchester. The house is modern, but it succeeded a previous one which claims to have been the scene of the " lost bride," and it contains a chest in which the unhappy lady is alleged to have hid herself. An ancient residence of the bishops of Winchester stood at Marwell Manor Farm, and is now represented by some plain doorways of the 14th and 15th centuries, and by a moat.
