Thanks for popping in and for your messages, great to hear from you.
We're off to Winchester for a nice day out today, well, it's such a smashing place with loads to see and do especially on a bright, sunny summer day.
Jumping off the park and ride bus by the park, you just have to have a look at the manicured lawns and flower beds.
King Alfred is in the distance, looking down. Here he is.
Next on the agenda is Winchester City Mill owned by the National Trust. It was a hive of industry, water whooshing through the mill race, turning the water wheel, grain in the hoppers feeding into the millstones for grinding and flour coming down the shute and into the flour bags.
The mill garden is rather beautiful.
Walking along the river was also pleasant, we found Viaduct Way, a footpath on an old railway track which still had vestiges of old bridges and tunnels but we didn't find the viaduct, more research needed there.
Back into the city again, there's always something to catch your eye.
Have a look at my other Winchester posts by clicking on the Winchester label above if you'd like to see more of the City.
Bye for now.
