Artist's Description

This delightful late 18th century house, grade-listed by English Heritage, stands on a narrow island, surrounded by two of the many little streams into which the River Itchen divides as it passes through Winchester.

The way to the Water Meadows from the city centre goes south along College Walk, turns right past Winchester College’s New Hall and then left through a little gate. Here one is greeted by the sight of Mill House at the start of the path that leads eventually to St Cross, running between some of the College’s playing fields to the west and a nature reserve to the east. The white railings form part of the little foot-bridge that crosses the former mill stream to reach the front door. These days Mill House is one of the many homes the College has available for its teaching staff, all of whom are resident.

Though he does not mention it by name, John Keats must have passed Mill House as he took his daily walks out to St Cross in the Autumn of 1819.
