Winchester

Some photos of Winchester:

King Alfred's Statue

This is King Alfred, the guy who burnt the cakes.  His capital was at Winchester, and he currently overlooks the main street.

King Arthurs round table

This is King Arthurs Round Table, in the Great Hall at Winchester Castle.  Of course, it wasn’t built by the king, it is quite old though; the theory is that it was painted in the time of Henry VIII.

I should have done my research before I started writing this post…I’m pretty sure this guy is by Anthony Gormley…he is standing in the flooded crypt of Winchester Cathedral.

This is a “traditional” flint wall – located outside the Bishop of Winchester’s house.
