|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Parish Church of St. Andrew is the oldest documented building in Medstead. The origins of the Church and the parish of Medstead can be traced back to the Saxon period and the granting of the Liberty of Alresford which covered the present-day parishes of Old Alresford, New Alresford and Medstead.
The Church is sited upon what is, effectively, an island with several other buildings, including the Church Hall, previously a Victorian school and the site of a Tithe Barn, and Old Rectory Cottage. It is possible the church was once sited on a green, or parcel of glebe land reserved for the church, which has, subsequently, been encroached upon.
