Winchester, ancient capital of England and judged best place to live in the UK in 2006!
12 September 2011
Another photo from the ruins of Wolvesey Castle, which was once the residence of the Bishops of Winchester. The name Wolvesey means Wulf's Island, the higher ground between two streams of the River Itchen. The ruins are mostly the creation of Bishop Henry of Blois who became bishop in 1129. The new Bishop of Winchester won't have to live here in the ruins, he has a nice little place next door!
I am away with work at the moment and have scheduled this post. For my nearest location see This is Belgium
