Treasurer's House
In Minster Court
by David Nash Ford BA, Editor, History on Britannia

Owned and opened to the public by the National Trust, the Treasurer's House stands between the Minster Close and Dean's Park. It is a fine Jacobean Mansion which partly dates back to the reign of King Edward I, when it was occupied by Treasurer's Housethe Treasurer of the Minster: the man in charge of the cathedral's silver and plate.

Internally, the house employs numerous architectural styles: an innovative yet confusing design set out under a late Victorian owner named Frank Green. Treasures include the beautiful Flemish Tapestries and early lavatories once used by King Edward VII! The cellars are infamous for their ghostly Roman soldiers.
