Description

The Church of St.Cross

The Church of St.Cross is attached to the Hospital of St.Cross and is seen here from the water meadows by the River Itchen. The church dates from 1135 and stone was brought in from as far afield as Caen in France,Dorset and the Isle of Wight with flint from local chalk pits. It was from around here the Henry de Blois ( grandson of William the Conqueror )was stopped by a peasant girl who with her people were starving because of the civil war raging at the time, the plea worked and on the spot where the Hospital now stands a site to help the poor was founded and remains to this day.

Fascinating location and a good narrative, but that dull sky really puts a dampener on this shot. There is at least some detail in the clouds, but I think I would come back on a sunnier day.
