About this spot
The William Walker pub sits under the shadow of the 11th Century cathedral in the centre of Winchester. William Walker, a deep-sea diver, was called in in the early 1900s, as huge cracks appeared in the cathedral walls. Walker worked underground in water to shore up the foundations of the building for six years. It is estimated that some 25000 bags of concrete, 115000 concrete blocks, and 900000 bricks were used in operation. The swing sign on the pub is an actual divers helmet, and it is a tribute to the much-famed man who often visited the pub back in the days.
