More than a century ago, Winchester Cathedral, which is one of the largest cathedrals in Europe and the longest of all Gothic cathedrals, was saved by the heroic work of a diver, who worked tirelessly to reinforce the foundations of this historic structure, and thus preserve one of the largest and most iconic buildings in all of England.

The man was William Walker who saved Winchester Cathedral from collapsing into ruins, and by doing so he became a hero in the folklore of Winchester and for the entire country. The gratitude for him was such that there are numerous statues of him around the cathedral, and on each St Swithin's day, prayers of thanksgiving are offered to this experienced diver for the important work he had done.
