In the cathedral close, the
PILGRIMS' SCHOOL, externally Georgian with a porch on short Tuscan
columns, but in fact older ... of the 1680s ... the N part merges with the
PILGRIMS' HALL, a hall of the mid C15,
memorable for having the earliest hammerbeam roof so far identified. ...
The roof is half-hipped to the N. Pilgrims travelling to St Swithun's
shrine at Winchester Cathedral used to stay here.
Opposite the school to the W
is the long range of STABLES, running S-N. This is timber-framed
and must date from the early C16 ...
New buildings at the school, with
a design based on traditional Hampshire barns. One can see clear
reflection of detail in the older buildings above.
