The Hospital of St Cross, Winchester
Another picture from St Cross - a view from the upper level of the ambulatory, through a wood-framed, leaded-light bay window with the old glass covered by a gentle cloak of dust and cobwebs.
Those of you who are regular visitors to my site will know of my enchantment with The Hospital of St Cross in Winchester.
Founded between 1132 and 1136 by Henry of Blois, St Cross is England's oldest charitable institution. It is non-secular, the residents are elderly lay-people from the local community.
If you would like to see more of my pictures of St Cross please look - here -
If you like what you see, perhaps you would like to donate to the charity. Every penny helps.
If you like my pictures, perhaps you might like to donate to the charity. Every penny helps - St Cross receives no support from central government, and depends entirely on donations.
