Wednesday 28th, 2pm
12 Winchester Part 3 – Bishops, Buildings & Bones, 1600 to 1850
Talk by Andrew Negus

Winchester Castle gets a makeover as Cromwell and the Civil War arrive. Royalty returns with the plague, a new castle and a mistress. Isaac Walton, Hanging Judge Jefferies and Jane Austen make appearances, and tourists replace pilgrims.
The modern world takes the bishops’ wealth but delivers a canal, the army and a railway.
