About Fornham All Saints

The village sign depicts a helmet and crossed swords, commemorating two battles that took place here. In about 902, King Edward fought off a cousin to retain the English crown. In 1173 Henry II defeated the Earl of Leicester and a Flemish army. Today the historic village is somewhat more peaceful. It appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Fernham omnium Sanctorum".

There's evidence of a small prehistoric or Roman settlement near Pigeon Lane, with as many as four hut circles.
