"WEEKE, (or Wyke), a parish in the upper half of Buddlesgate hundred, county Hants, 1 mile N.W. of Winchester, of which city it is a suburb. The parish is traversed by the road from Winchester to Stockbridge, and contains the Winchester station of the South-Western railway, also the union workhouse. The village is situated under the old castle walls of the city of Winchester, but the ancient fosse which surrounded the western walls of the city has been filled up, and thirteen houses erected on the site. At Fullflood, in this parish, is the site of the original church. "
