Hampshire HistBites

A brilliant history and heritage podcast created by Hampshire History Trust, the charity that also organises Winchester Heritage Open Days.Our aim is to offer everyone the opportunity to delve into the past and go on a journey to discover hidden heritage and hear fascinating untold tales. We usually talk to experts and enthusiasts who are based in Hampshire and/or who have stories to share about Hampshire’s history and heritage. Occasionally though we may go further afield, it just depends where the research and the stories take us!
