HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: The abbey gatehouse is the only substantial remain
Across grass-covered lawns there are mouldering traces of an arch that used to span the abbey millstream. Stones from the abbey were used to rebuild St Bartholomews church nearby, and were scavenged for farm buildings in the area. It is worth visiting St Barts to see 5 nicely carved capitals from the abbey church. Other stones from the abbey were used to build the church tower. From 1788 the city lockup occupied the site of the abbey church, but no trace of this or the church itself remains and the area is now built up with modern houses.
Hyde Abbey is located just outside the old northern gates of Winchester, an easy stroll from the city centre. Take Hyde Street from North Walls (B3040), then turn onto King Alfred Place. You'll pass St Bartholomew's church before you reach the gateway.
