The Great Hall at Winchester and Arthur's Round Table


The Great Hall at Winchester Castle was built between 1222 and 1235 by Henry III and later extended by Edward II, it is built of flint and has, inside and out, a limestone dressings to windows and doorways. The buttresses and ancient dormers are covered with finely cut masonry and the modern open timber truss roof over the nave is covered with tiles, it is certainly an impressive medieval building. 

Sadly, it is all that remains of the castle that was founded within a one year of the conquest of England.
