I already have a post of the Westgate, but from the other side. This photo is looking down towards the High Street.

A close up shows that you can see almost all the High Street through the arch, the Horse & Rider Statue, The Town Clock, the green coloured roof of the Guildhall and St Giles Hill in the background. The Westgate is now a museum and due to recent cuts the council were planning to close it entirely, fortunately they have agreed to now open it on weekends.


  1. I like these photos. The way you framed the scene through arch is excellent

  2. Very nice! I love using something as a natural frame. :)

  3. Thank you so much! I have been away for a while, what a lovely surprise on my return, my favourite view of Winchester!

    I tried to take this picture just before I left, but my camera broke - I dropped it...

  4. Glad you like it! I always think it's funny that up until the 50s I think, cars used to drive through there!
