We came across this little church by accident. It is rumoured to be built on what was the chapel of William the Conqueror's palace. A lovely little church and well worth seeing.

I think there were lots of tourists standing in front each time I went passed , well that's my excuse! What a haven of peace whereas all outside is very busy.

It's a little gem of a church which, despite being on one of the busiest shortcuts in Winchester (from the High Street to the Cathedral and close to several cafe bars), is easily overlooked because it's set back into the adjoining buildings.

The fact that this place contains almost a thousand years of history gives me goose bumps every time I visit. Very humbling.
