HAHA Wall Close

There are several at Winwick - some built in 1850 during the original construction and some during the Crinkle Crankle wall build in 2000. Designed to hold back stock whilst affording uninterrupted views.

Named after a rare visit of Napoleon Bonapart to England with his mistress Josephine - a respectful British general was showing them his grand estate and the layout of the grounds when Josaphine lost his footing and fell into the ditch and wall construction. To the retort of 'Haw Haw' from Bonapart. He never fully mastered French.
