Side view of head and shoulders of man made up to look like a mannequin and dressed in standard diving dress.

13-22 September are Heritage Open Days in Gosport and Winchester. Mannequin Man came to visit us both in the museum and in the Great Hall in Winchester where we had a stand for two days. Masquerading as William Walker, the Winchester Cathedral Diver, he had a steady stream of curious visitors … and some playfully ‘shocking’ moments.

If you have not seen mannequin-man before you will enjoy this video of some of the visitors to our stand.
