Winchester - The Ancient Capital Of Wessex

On the surface quite an unassuming town, but dig a little deeper and you find medieval timber framed buildings, Jacobean Mansions, Georgian Townhouses and narrow winding streets.....the weather was shit though.....

Yet another amazing pics! As an anglophile (more like a Londonophile actually), I am always looking forward to your pictures. I hope you can create new photo threads at least once a week.
