The splendid 16C cathedral Treasurer's House comprises three residences joined together in the early 20C by the businessman Frank Green, who renovated each of the 13 rooms in a different style. All are richly decorated with objects, furnishings and paintings covering 400 years of history. Note the great staircase and the moulding on the ceiling of the Dining Room, from the early 18C. Vestiges of a Roman road were found in the basements. Gorgeous garden.
