As mentioned in yesterday's post, Winchester Cathedral was built on a very high water table, although thanks to William Walker the Cathedral is no longer in danger of collapsing. However you can see evidence of this high water table most clearly in the Crypt which is often flooded. Within the Crypt of the Cathedral is the sculpture Sound II by Antony Gormley which was installed in 1986. Although not currently flooded you can see some damp patches already down there, on occasions the water comes up to the statue's knees.
