SHUTTERS IN WINCHESTER
Winchester is a city in the county of Hampshire, on the edge of England’s South Downs National Park. Home to c. 46,000 people, Winchester is well known for the Great Hall of its castle, which was built in the 12th century. The Great Hall was rebuilt sometime between 1222 and 1235, and still exists in this form. It is famous for King Arthur’s Round Table, which has hung in the hall from at least 1463.
The ancestry of the name Winchester dates from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from when the family lived in the city of Winchester in Hampshire. The name is derived from the Old English word ventaceaster, meaning the dweller at the Roman fort.
