Artist's Description

No 9 stands on the west side of Winchester Cathedral’s Inner Close, south-west of the cloister garth’s great lawn; until recently it housed the offices for the Diocese of Winchester and so came to be known as Church House. It is one of a number of houses in the Close either built anew or rebuilt for resident Cathedral clergy at the time of the Restoration of Charles II in the 1660s. The lower sash windows were a later 18th century modification, but the original 17th century stone mullioned windows can still be seen under the three upper gables.

In the account of his daily walks out to St Cross while staying in Winchester in September 1819, John Keats writes " … I pass on through two college-like squares seemingly built for the dwelling place of Deans and Prebendaries – garnished with grass and shaded with trees." No 9 faces onto the first of those quadrangles and Keats would have seen it much as it is today.

The whole of Winchester Cathedral Close is one of English Heritage’s scheduled monuments.
