My mum, Monica was born in Winchester and christened in Winchester cathedral. I have no idea how that happened; our family were not religious and even in the twenties would only have gone to church for high-days and holidays, weddings, funerals…. and christenings. All I can think is that my grandfather reg who was very persuasive, somehow managed to arrange it. I have been to Winchester twice, once many, many years ago, and then more recently with my Gaelic group; however we spent all day in doors leaning Gaelic! We had a lightening trip round the museum and then home!
I would love to go back again, and this time have a really good look round!
