Long Description:

At the base of a health and safety board at the steps leading down to the ruins is the wording:

This was the Chapter House of
the Augustinian Canons whose
Priory was at Christ Church
from 1163 to 1537AD

The Page Paige blog tells us:

Just outside of the cathedral on the front grounds you can see the excavated remains of the old Chapter House, a location in which clerical meetings, readings and discussions would have been held. All that remains of the Chapter House are the sunken ruins, which you can actually go down into and examine first hand.
