A day in Winchester no 1, 31st August 2016
Last summer I spent some time in Winchester.
Mike and I spent a day 'doing' the city. We started at the military museum, home of the Royal Hampshire Regiment and the barracks, now converted to rather smart apartments.. We followed on looking in the 13th Century Great Hall, where hangs the Round Table of legend! and a rather ugly statue of Queen Victoria which seems to have been left there as if nowhere else could be thought of to house her.
Then to Westgate, which I did not photograph due to being surrounded by vans, but we did take some photographs from the roof and Mike was regaled at length by the curator.
And finally we walked to to the cathedral which will figure in the next blog.
