Hyde Gate: the only remaining part of Hyde Abbey
Hyde Gate: the only remaining part of Hyde Abbey
Hyde Abbey had been built on the orders of king Henry I, because space around Winchester Cathedral precinct had become too restricted. The monks moved here in 1110, bringing with them the relics of king Alfred the Great and members of his family. The abbey was suppressed in 1838 as part of king Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries; king Alfred's grave was ransacked and destroyed, and soon little trace of the abbey remained. Only this gateway survives.
