Winchester City Mill Garden - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Leading from the back of Winchester City Mill is a garden set on an island in the river Itchen. This is a quiet place full of unusual plants, surrounded by the sound of the river and singing birds. A great place to unwind. The Watermill biuilding itself is to the south, partially obscured by the trees on the island.

The gardens shown in this picture are part of the Winchester City Mill, a working museum run by the National Trust in the heart of Winchester. The mill dates back to at least 1086, when it is recorded in the Doomsday Book. The current building dates from 1744 and was a functioning mill right up to the early 1900's. Entrance to the gardens and the museum is free to members of the National Trust. After passing through the City Mill, the River Itchen, in which these gardens sit on an island, flows through The Wiers, another popular attraction.
