Cathedral Close, Gloucester
Church House, the timber-frame building on the right, dates back in part to the 14th century, when it was the abbot's quarters of St Peter's Abbey. About a century later, a new building was built for the abbot, and the abbey's prior (the second monk in the abbey's hierarchy) moved in. During the English Reformation, the abbey was dissolved and the abbey church became the cathedral of the new diocese of Gloucester. The building then became the deanery of the cathedral Link . Richard II held a parliament in this building in 1378. LinkExternal link

In the 1940s the deanery moved into a building on the other side of Miller's Green (just behind the camera in this shot). This old part of Church House is usually referred to as "Parliament Room" today.
