Bishops Waltham Palace: The ruins of a medieval palace (together with later additions) used by the Bishops and senior clergy of Winchester as they travelled through their diocese. Winchester was the richest diocese in England, and its properties were grandiose and extravagantly appointed. Much of what can be seen today is the work of William Wykeham, who was bishop from 1367. There is an exhibition about theWinchester bishops on the first floor of the farmhouse.'Other palaces of the Bishops of Winchester include Farnham CastleKeep and Wolvesey Castle (Old Bishop's Palace).
