Close Secrets: Historic houses in Salisbury Close
Wed 5 April 2017, 10:30 – 16:30 BST
An all-day guided tour to the original Bishop’s Palace (now the Cathedral School) and three private houses in Salisbury’s Cathedral Close.
After visiting the Undercroft, and the Bishop’s private chapel, we visit our first house, Aula-la-Stage, first built as a canonry in the early 13th century. In the Tudor period it was extensively restored with ceilings resembling those at Hampton Court.
Following a light lunch at The King’s House Café in Salisbury Museum, we visit two contrasting houses: 68 Myles Place begun in 1718; and Hemyngsby on Choristers’ Green dating from the early 14th century.The tour will end at about 4.30pm when tea (price not included) is available at The Cathedral Refectory, and Choral Evensong at 5.30pm.
We are most grateful to the present tenants of all three houses for generously allowing us to visit and learn the fascinating histories of their properties.
