Date of construction[edit]

Just a question, how could the castle have been the seat of English government in the 10th and early 11th century if it was built in 1067? Was there a castle at the site prior to the Norman one (as was the case at Old Sarum)? If not then wouldn't it be more proper to say that the city of Winchester was the seat of English or at least West Saxon government in the 10th and early 11th centuries?

English. Wessex was the only native English state from Alfred's time onward, and Edward the Elder ruled most of modern Wngland. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 19:45, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

I've been reading high and low to try to find out why this place has this name. I'm prepared to believe that it's a corruption of an earlier name but have found no indication at all... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.208.49.20 (talk) 15:32, 4 November 2011 (UTC)Qfissler (talk) 13:10, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Sandleford Park[edit]

I have removed the section titled 'Sandleford Park' as it does not relate to the location watership Down. I imagine it was included as part of a campaign to save it from development. That may or may not be a worthy cause but it has nothing to do with Watership Down, the place in Hampshire. If someone feels strongly they can create another article called Sandleford Park and put the information there if it is noteable. cheers Geopersona (talk) 19:08, 17 September 2013 (UTC)
