Almost Wordless Wednesday! Alfred – he’s really great!

On my birthday last Sunday, we took a trip down to Winchester to have a mooch about. Whilst we were sitting outside a cafe having a cuppa, we noticed this rather splendid chap keeping an eye on us.

May I introduce Alfred the Great, King of the Anglo-Saxons from 886 to 899, first of the Anglo-Saxon Kings and defeater of many a Viking.

We followed a guided tour around Winchester that was written by our friend Malcolm. The walk is posted on his blog and well worth a read if you’ve never been.

Check out his excellent blog too!

Farewell my Friends!
