The Cloisters
(No 2)
SX 9292 NW 3/94 29.1.53.
1762. Half the frontage is part of the above house, with similar doorway without
stucco. The other half is partly of stone and shows traces of the Cathedral Cloisters,
which were demolished in C17. These consist of a quatrefoil at 1st floor level,
part of a buttress on the SW angle, and an EE blocked doorway on the south wall
inside (inside the gate of Church House.) Otherwise the description is as above.
The grading is on account of the mediaeval remains.
All the listed buildings in Cathedral Close form a group.
