About Crispin Drummond
P&G Wells is a historic bookshop on the ground floor of this building. It is a traditional shop that manages to continue by focussing on new books that are supplied with old-fashioned values of service.
Crispin Drummond purchased this Townhouse in 1765
Why Crispin Drummond chose Winchester
The building has always had a family atmosphere. Originally a private house, and now still a family firm, the top floor has all the privace and the best views. It has always been a residential flat.
What makes this Townhouse unique
It is a privilege to witness the regular timetable of this historic street - the daily rehearsal of the choirboys opposite; the schoolboys of the College hurrying between lessons; clergy officials going to meetings at The Bishop's Palace; teams of tourists crowding round the house where Jane Austen died; congregations arriving suddenlty to attend services at the Cathedral; revellers leaving The Wykeham Arms at closing time: and then perfect peace at the end of the day.
