My customary Thursday Afternoon Office Breakout took me to the water meadows along side the River Itchen near Winchester, via a coffee shop stop to pick up some iced tea. Nearby is the ancient ancient Hospital of St Cross, established in the 12th century, and one of the oldest almshouses in England.
At its heart is a large Norman church ("...a Norman Cathedral in miniature..."). My eye was caught by a blocked up door with a wonderfully carved archway. I thought that a detailed shot including the repeating pattern of the arch would work for Ingeborg's Abstract Thursday challenge.
