I had a little bit of time on my hands and a camera in my shoulderbag, so I snapped off some shots.
It's a Grade 1 Listed Building, and has previously been an inn, the printing offices of the old Wiltshire Gazette and a china shop.The building was extensively restored in 1834 and a lot of historical details from various centuries were preserved.
This is the entrance hall - the picture is over-exposed to show the gallery around it.
Turning and walking on, you enter what was the banqueting hall. This view looks towards the street entrance. There is a range of windows on the right. I didn't take photos of those, but some of the medieval glass still remains in the leaded panes.
Turning right around, you face some rather nice Jacobean panelling and a carved fireplace. Some of the colours have been replaced.
Through the dark, heavily carved wooden arch, a flight of modern stairs lead into the business part of the building.
Any idea what that business entails?
In 1931 it was converted into a cinema and after more modifications to the non-protected part, is now Salisbury's Five Screen Odeon cinema.
