793 – Hampshire

I’m not in anyway disparaging Hampshire (you are now thinking that’s exactly what I am about to do) but any attempt to compare two locations will always in some way be doomed to failure.

In the 70’s I visited Guildford quite a few times, but I never got to visit the cathedral, I have visited Winchester’s grand cathedral and of course Portsmouth’s. I could never recall ever having seen a cathedral anywhere in Dorset.

Sherborne has a church, which it appears is nominally a cathedral (I don’t really know what nominally means in this context). Why is it that Dorset doesn’t have a clearly designated cathedral (in reality, I’m not bothered by this, but am curious as to why that should be.

Winchester is a critical city. Whilst I haven’t researched Winchester I know the place is loaded with history, of which the round table is only one part. There are many places in the county where the history spans the centuries.

Dorsets history is different from the Jurassic coast it’s history doesn’t span centuries but eons.

Two entirely different but in many ways equally fascinating stories.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
