Wolvesey Castle

 Wolvesey Castle

Wolvesey Castle, also known as the "Old Bishop's Palace", is a ruined castle in Winchester, Hampshire, England. The castle was erected by the Bishop of Winchester Henry of Blois, Stephen's brother, between 1130 and 1136 on an eyot between two branches of the River Itchen. It was the scene for the Rout of Winchester in which the Empress Matilda assaulted the castle in 1141, during a period known as The Anarchy. A palace was built on the same site by Christopher Wren for Bishop Morley in 1684. The extensive surviving ruins are currently owned and maintained by English Heritage.
