A Portrait of Winchester
A Portrait of Winchester
  • Description
  • Related

Winchester, the county town of Hampshire and once the capital of England, remains one of the countryís most beautiful and historic cities. Every corner seems to present a striking image of its past. Here are all the elements that contribute to our sense of history: a castle, gateways, ruins, winding streets, ancient churches and quiet cloisters set in a wooded valley with river and meadows. Yet Winchester remains an active and bustling commercial and business centre, at the leading-edge of twenty-first century life, seat of local government and public services and a vibrant focus for the arts and education.

Alan Hayward reveals the full variety of this endlessly fascinating city and its environs in over 200 superb colour photographs which capture the essence of the place for residents and visitors alike.

Alan Hayward is a professional photographer who has spent most of his life in Hampshire. He specialises in photographing the natural world, printing his images often on a large scale. He has exhibited internationally and his images appear in numerous publications and on greetings cards. The first half of his career was spent as a teacher; most recently as Senior Lecturer in Education at the University College of Winchester, when he got to know and appreciate this historic city.

ISBN 978 1 84114 540 2, hardback, 230x214mm, 144 pages. Published June 2007.
