The Chesil Rectory
The Chesil Rectory
The City of Winchester History web page says:-
The Old Chesil Rectory is dated 1459, but is probably early 16th Century. It has 2 storeys and 2 gables with bargeboards to the road front. The building is timber-framed with plaster infilling. The upper part over sails the brick ground floor.
The roof is tiled and the projecting porch has a carved head. This was the site of the first Sunday School in Winchester. The building is now owned by the Local Authority, and is currently used as a Restaurant.
Chesil Street is a derivative of Cheesehill Street, which in turn comes from the Anglo-Saxon ceosel, meaning ‘gravel’. The appearance of the building is somewhat marred by the set of traffic lights which, although not attached to the building, are so placed as to dramatically detract from its visual amenity value.
