Set back between Jewry Street and St Peter Street with access by a passage
from the latter. Built in 1792 on the site of a house previously used
for Catholic worship. An early example of Gothic Revival designed by
John Carter and described and illustrated in its original state in Bishop
Milner's History of Winchester (Vol II p251). Converted to a hall on
building of new Church, the interior has lost its furnishings and decoration
whilst the exterior has also lost some of its original delicate ornament.
Large rectangular hall. Red brick with flint panels to rear. The front
to St Peter Street is cement rendered articulated by shelved buttresses,
originally crowned by pinnacles carried up over cranellated parapet.
String below parapet ornamented with rosettes and small plaques bearing
symbols of St Peter. 7 pointed windows, one set above porch. 3 lights
with wood tracery. Drip moulds, over on head stops. Later gabled porch
to right. Pointed entrance with drop mould over, the North wall has 2
pointed windows and quatre foil to centre.
