Jacobean Monument - Hyde

I have to start by saying photography is not my strongest subject, but hopefully through these 'snaps' I'll begin to learn what is a good picture and what's not!

There are so many interesting things to photograph in Winchester where to start... how about outside my front door...

Winchester has a number of areas, my favourite being Hyde to the north of the city centre. This suburb still manages to retain a tranquil air despite being only minutes from the centre. There are a number of interesting buildings and streets in Hyde - here's one in Victoria Road built into the walls of the former garden of Hyde Abbey House is this Jacobean monument. The original wall may be of Tudor origin.

  1. Well, welcome to the CDP family! And you're right, why not start just outside your door? Good luck!
