An official residence

It was only thanks to my involvement with Winchester Heritage Open Days that I discovered how unusual Abbey House is. It is the official residence of Winchester’s Mayor, and apparently there are only five cities in England which have an official mayoral residence.

Abbey House, Winchester

I am guessing London is one of the other five and I think York & Doncaster maybe in the five, but have no idea where the other two are. Do you?

    • Don’t worry Debbie I am days and days behind at the moment. Had such a busy weekend, working flat out and desperately taking a couple of hours out of the ‘day job’ to catch up now.
