Standford Hill Methodist Church
And on the very week that rioters came by,
through Standford lanes
a thousand strong or more,
to sack the Headley workhouse,
mob the rector, take away his tithes;
the reverend Mr Dickinson
was also forced to cede,
to his distress,
the paper-based consent
of Winchester to "Warrens Church"

Consent given in November 1830;
"Bible Christian" chapel built in 1861
