Winchester, as well as a small town close by across the border into Connecticut, was also the ancient capital of early England. This was the home of King C’nute in AD 900 when he learnt that even a King was unable to halt the sea’s tide from rising; he got wet! One of the most acclaimed early Anglo Saxon Kings, King Alfred the Great, had his capital here in AD 1000, sixty years before William the Conqueror invaded and changed the course of English history turning the existing Saxon Church into one of the grandest Cathedrals in the land.
