Portchester – 16/08/2017

A fine day.  There were many visitors around both inside and outside the castle boundary wall.

St Mary Church Portchester was built in the 1120’s within the grounds of Portchester Castle.  The caretaker of St Mary Church was such a nice man.  He saw me sketching and offered to move his car from the front of the church without being asked.  He told me the gate in front of the church is called lych gate and was used at burials for sheltering a coffin until the clergyman’s arrival.  A bit of education.
