William Walker

Today I've been doing a project that's been on my list for a long time- a figurine of a Winchester Victorian local hero- William Walker. Every kid growing up in my town had to learn about him, as he dived under Winchester Cathedral and filled the marshy waters there with sacks of straw and what not to stop the Cathedral sinking! It always seemed pretty far fetched that ground could be both stable enough to hold a Cathedral but soft enough to dive in!
