King Alfred Weekend 2015

datePosted on 12:54, September 27th, 2015 by Site admin

King Alfred statue, WinchesterHyde900 presents a weekend of events around the theme of Alfred the Great, jointly organised by Hyde900 and St Bartholomew’s Church.

Ruler of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex from AD871 to 899, Alfred subdued the invading Vikings and brought about a new era of learning, culture and law that built the foundations of our modern society. Having been buried in the New Minster in central Winchester for over 200 years, his remains were transferred to the newly-built Hyde Abbey in AD1110. October 26th 2015 marks the 1116th anniversary of his death.

Since 2012, Hyde900 has organised an annual weekend of events on subjects relating to King Alfred and Hyde.

Welcome at the King Alfred statue

Sunday morning 19th July saw the largest ever number of cyclists leaving the King Alfred statue in Wantage following a warm send off by the Mayor, Cllr St John Dickson, and a loud “Oyez! Oyez!”, and ring of his bell by the Town Crier.

The riders enjoyed the dry and sunny conditions, though were less pleased with the strong head winds, as they made their way first west, then south along the excellent route through the beautiful countryside of rural Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Hampshire, before entering Winchester from Kings Worthy via Hyde.

Intrigued by the large stone fireplace and chimney in his relatively modest cottage in Headbourne Worthy, David Spurling set out on a personal quest to find their origins and the significance of the marks carved on them. This led to a trail of scavenged and re-used building blocks from Hyde Abbey, scattered across Winchester and beyond.

On Saturday 25th April, David will talk about the results so far.
