Dear diary, happy #stswithunsday and so far not a rain drop in sight which is good because should it rain today it will rain for 40 days straight!
#saintswithun you see was a man to bare a long grudge.
Saint swith tun was an Anglo Saxton Bishop of #WinchesterCathedral back in 800 and something AD. However it was following his death in about 862AD that things ki cked off. You see originally he requested to be buried outside in the land he loved so much, which was what happened all good so far. However, in 971AD they decided that they liked the old chap so much that they wanted to bring him indoors and create a shrine to honour him.
This is said to have greatly upset the long deceased Bishop and he vented his rath on the country by #cursing us with rain for 40days but he did add a slightly reasonable clause that this would only happen if rain wS to fall today on #stswithunsbridge in #winchester.
"St Swithun's day if thou dost rainFor forty days it will remainSt Swithun's day if thou be fairFor forty days 'twill rain nae mare"
So today we #Brits take more interest in the #weather than is normal to find out if we will have a wet or dry summer.
I hasten to add that it tends to be quite an accurate prediction.! Want to see more of #hammy go to www.hairyfarmersdaughter.co.uk

Today is St Swithin's Day. This is his resting place in Winchester Cathedral. Swithin was a Saxon Bishop of Winchester. Folklore says that if it rains today ,it will rain for forty days afterwards. "St. Swithin's day if thou dost rain 
For forty days it will remain 
St. Swithin's day (15 July) if thou be fair 
For forty days 'twill rain nae mair."

The sign said to be careful when treading on England’s richest collection of original medieval tiles. If so precious, why let stupid tourist like me step on it? 12th century? 13th century?

Winchester cathedral ⛪️
Fifteen centuries of English history lie behind the magnificent Cathedral you see today. It stands at the heart of historic Winchester, once the seat of Anglo-Saxon and Norman royal power, on the site of an early Christian church. Begun in 1079, the Cathedral has been a place of worship ever since. Today the Cathedral welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year and in recent years has become well known for its annual Christmas Market and open-air ice rink, which alone attract over 350,000 visitors. A walk round the Cathedral takes you through centuries of English architecture. Particularly striking is the vast gothic nave, the longest medieval nave in Europe. Great works of art, including paintings, sculptures and carvings can be found throughout the building. Don’t miss the Crypt, this atmospheric part of the Cathedral is home to Antony Gormley’s contemplative statue ‘Sound II’ which, after prolonged periods of rainfall can be seen standing in water. The Winchester Bible, the largest and finest of all surviving 12th-century English bibles, is one of the Cathedral’s greatest treasures. Its exquisitely illuminated capital letters, coloured with gold and lapis lazuli, are as intense today as they would have been 800 years ago. The Cathedral is the resting place of many influential and famous people including Saxon kings, bishops and the much-loved English novelist Jane Austen, who was buried in the Cathedral in 1817. An exhibition telling of Jane’s life in Hampshire can be found beside her grave and a memorial plaque funded by her nephew is on the wall adjacent. A guided tour provided by the Cathedral’s own volunteer guides is by far the best way to explore the building. Available on the hour from 10am – 3pm Monday to Saturday, these hour-long tours really do bring the Cathedral, its characters and history to life. It’s worth taking the time to walk through the Cathedral’s historic Inner Close where you will find beautiful buildings and hidden gardens and a gateway to a pretty area of the City known as Kingsgate Village. #spotthehubby #beautifulbritain #winchestercathedral #winchester

First post! Has to be the iconic Winchester Cathedral! ⛪️ The foundation of the City for over fifteen centuries. .
A first Anglo-Saxon structure was founded in 642 on a site close to the current cathedral. .
King Alfred the Great and King Cnut (amongst many other famous dignitaries) are buried here. .
Following the Norman invasion in 1066, work on a new cathedral began in 1079. .
The building has changed a lot over the years with Gothic extensions added in 1189 and further significant alterations and additions made in the 14th-16th Centuries. .
English novelist, Jane Austen was buried here in 1817. .
Famously, the cathedral was saved from collapse due to waterlogged foundations by William Walker, a diver who placed over 25,000 bags of concrete, 100,000 concrete blocks and 900,000 bricks having worked six-hour days between 1906 and 1912 in total darkness and under water! A statue to commemorate his achievements is located in the Cathedral. A local pub is also named in his honour! 🍺 @williamwalkerpub.
The Cathedral remains a thriving attraction today and is well worth a visit, with guided tours, gift shop, cafe and regular events including a fantastic Christmas Market and ice rink in the winter months. ❄️ Find out more: @winchestercathedral

The gateway to Dome Alley in Winchester with a glimpse of the historic Kingsgate through the arch - some of this dates back to the 1400s.

Reasons why I love Winchester #1222. Did you know Winchester has it's own diving hero? William Walker, laboured under water below Winchester Cathedral for six hours a day at depths up to 6 metres. He worked in total darkness, using his bare hands to feel his way through the cloudy, muddy water saving our Cathedral. 💦 💧 🏊‍♂️ 🌊💕👍

2018年5月19日撮影 🍃北側のシェードガーデンより🍃 最近、南側のガーデン中心のpostだったため、たまには北側のシェードガーデンも😄 🌹イングリッシュローズ・ウィンチェスターキャシドラル🌹 耐陰性があるとの触れ込みから、昨年12月にお迎えしました。常緑樹の下で、じめじめしており、もともと苔が繁茂している場所でした。場所が場所だけに、春芽吹くかどうか心配でしたが、無事に一番花が開花👍 (但し、環境に慣れていないせいか、うどんこ病にかかっています😅) 純白のロゼット咲き+ミルラ系の強香🎶 Rose name : Winchester Cathedral, made by David Austin in 1988, from my shade garden🌹 These pictures were taken 19th May 2018. . #薔薇#バラ#ウィンチェスターキャシードラル#イングリッシュローズ#純白#ロゼット咲き#四季咲きの薔薇#シュラブローズ#香りの良いバラ#日陰に強いバラ#薔薇のある庭#ザ花部#花撮り人#岐阜カメラ部#rose#winchestercathedral#davidaustinroses#purewhite#ig_roses#fregrance#9vaga_rose9#roseinstagram#flowerphotography#baraiegram#roselovers#mygardenrose#instaroses#roseoftheday#ig_flowers_macro#sonyα700

Medieval Legends which predominate the Arthurian Scene today, tell us that Camelot was none other than the Great Historic City of Winchester in the heart of modern Hampshire. Winchester, has long been identified with Camelot. The identity of Winchester as Camelot was, and is, proofed by the fact that the vast Round Table of King Arthur himself hung on the wall of the Great Hall of the Winchester Castle. It can still be seen there today. Of particular historical and architectural interest are Winchester Cathedral and the Great Hall of the ruined Norman castle that houses the spectacular King Arthur's Round Table. At the western side of the old city, stands all that is left of the Norman castle which occupied this site, the Great Hall. It is regarded as the finest hall in all England, outside of Westminster. The Great Hall's windows are the coats of arms of all the great medieval monarchs, churchmen and nobles, impressively rendered in stained glass. Of interest to Arthurians is the giant King Arthur's Round Table hanging high up on the inside wall. The construction of Winchester Cathedral was begun in 1079. At 556 ft. in length, it has the distinction of being the longest cathedral in all of Europe. Ascending thoughts and feelings, this surprise of the tomb & memorial of writer, Jane Austen housed inside the Cathedral..part 1 of 2..the round table is in the next set of snaps..🎭📚🤹‍♀️🎪🏄‍♀️✌️🎼🤘🇨🇺🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿#winchestercathedral #winchester #england #cathedral #architecture #norman #engineering #janeausten #writer #novel #prideandprejudice #england #wanderlust #travel #adventure #explore #tourism #photograph #picture #snapshot #travelphotography #travelphoto #goodtimes #castle #goodvibes
