ST PETERS HOSPITAL

DESCRIPTION + /

According to tradition, King Athelstan founded a hospital to the West of the minster in 935. William I confirmed the hospital, but it was moved to a new site in the reign of William Rufus. Two fragments of Anglian cross-shafts have been found in St Leonard's Place, near the site of St Peter's Hospital. The first, found by 1852 is late 7th-early 9th century, and the second found in 1833-4 is 9th century. (For later history see SE65SW17).
