Cellarers House
(Boarding House of
Kiiag's School)
(formerly listed as
part of Residences
incorporating remains of
TL 5479 2/102 Infirmary including Chapel)
The Cellares House, now a boarding house of King's School extends south at
the west end of Infirmary Lane. It is probably of earlier date than Infirmary.
The ground storey has massive walls and a Norman barrel vault. Much of the
building was demolished in 1770 when the dwelling was built on the south
side. The north side has 2 bays of the C12 Infirmary arcade, with rickly
ornamented arches and capitals. The roof is tiled, with flat headed dormers.
the buff coloured house on the south side was built in 1770 and an upper
attic storey was added in the C19. The south front has 5 window range,
double-hung sashes with glazing bars, in flush cased frames. A central
C19 gabled porch projects on the front. The west front is C19 with 2 stone
mullioned bays, in C14 style and 2 crow-stepped gables. The roof is tiled,
with 5 C19 gabled dormers on the south front.

The Dark Cloister, Powcher's Hall, the Painted Chamber (Walsingham House),
the Chapel of the Infirmary (Deanery), the Black Hostelry and Cellarers Chamber
and Cellarers House (Boarding House of King's School) form a group.
