St Lawrence Church is a parish church in the Church of England in Winchester.

History[edit]

It is just off the High Street, in Winchester, England. It is probably of Norman origin, and is said to have been the chapel of William the Conqueror's palace (built 1069-70, destroyed 1141). The church is now almost wholly surrounded by adjacent buildings. It is recorded as being restored in 1475-7, in 1672 (the present roof dates from this restoration), 1847-8, 1881, and 1979-80.

St Lawrence Church is a Grade II listed building.[2]

Organ[edit]

The church contains a two manual pipe organ dating from 1882 by Jones and Son of Fulham[3] which was almost completely replaced by George Osmond in 1966. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.[4]

Rectors[edit]

The parish was united with St Maurice's Church in 1904, St Swithun-upon-Kingsgate Church in 1973 and St Bartholomew's Church, Hyde, from 2010.
