St Swithun's Gate and the Porter's Lodge - Winchester Cathedral by 


St Swithun’s Gate, Winchester is from the 15th century.
It marks the boundary between the walled lands belonging to the Church and the ancient walled town of Winchester. This shot is looking into the Church grounds from Winchester. The buildings are the Porter’s lodge and Cheyne Court, both from the 1400’s which still belong to the Winchester Cathedral.
St. Swithen is, of course, the Patron Saint of the Cathedral, and is buried in it. St, Swithen’s day is the 15th July

There is a weather-rhyme is well known throughout the British Isles since Elizabethan times. copied from projectbritain.com

’St Swithin’s Day, if it does rainFull forty days, it will remainSt Swithin’s Day, if it be fairFor forty days, t’will rain no more.’

    This is a great shot! I should love to step back in time to when this was built.

  • That would be great, wouldn’t it. But only for a short time ;-)
