An early C14 ground floor room or undercroft of a mediaeval house thought
to have been built by a stone mason from Beaulieu Abbey. Built of stone rubble
with arched doorcase down 8 steps. Three windows, one a single light window
with shouldered head, the others 2-light shouldered headed windows. The undercroft
was originally a shop and there was living accommodation above. Two intersecting
quadripartite rib vaults with 2 fine bosses one probably a Head of Christ,
the other a female head. Stone hooded fireplace with ball flower ornament.
C15 brick floor. Above the undercroft are a pair of brick council houses
built in 1902, the first in Southampton, but not of special architectural
interest. This undercroft is the most elaborate of the surviving stone vaulted
undercrofts of Southampton. Scheduled as an ancient monument.
