ROYAL GARRISON CHURCH, Portsmouth
The Royal Garrison Church is the only remaining part of a hospital, known as Domus Dei, founded by the Bishop of Winchester in c1212. The buildings were gradually removed after the Reformation, leaving the church behind. Charles II married Catherine of Braganza here in 1662. On 10th January 1941 it was partially destroyed during a devastating German air raid. The nave remains roofless; the nave is fascinating.
