Winchester: History You Can See - By Penny Legg

This book looks back at the history of the city of Winchester. Winchester is a city full of history and in this book Penny Legg takes a look at some of the fascinating points of interest. Showing the history of Winchester through photographs and with detailed descriptions about the background, the book explores from Winchester Cathedral, churches, cemeteries to statues and King Arthur’s Round Table to the house that Jane Austen spent her final days.

This book will be an interesting read not only for the people who live in Winchester but it makes a brilliant guide book for those visiting Winchester. The photographs really bring the book to life.

  1. I love history and this looks interesting.

  2. Yes it is. Penny Legg books all have great photographs and great research. They are really interesting a real good read if you are into history.

  3. Love Winchester - visited several times in the 80's and 90's - reading this made me want to take another trip up there!

  4. I am ashamed to say that have never visited Winchester - I really should get out and about more. This post has certainly made me want to go and explore.
    You have a super blog here Nikki - I came over after you left such a nice comment about my book on Kim The Bookworm's site.

  5. Thank you Carol. I will look forward to reading youur book and if it is ok with you reviewing it too. I also post my reviews on both Amazons and Goodreads too. The great thing about Penny Legg books is that they have fantastic photographs in them which gives you great detail of what the places look like without having to actually go there, or if you do go there a great guide book x
