The Guildhall was built in 1269 as the church for the Greyfriars. After the Dissolution of the monasteries in 1538 the church became the Town Hall. It was also used as a court room with famous trials including Willaim Blake (famous for writing 'Jerusalem') in 1804.
Here is a view of the building from the south east.
In 1947 it was used to for local history displays and today is part of the Chichester District Museum service. It is a Grade 1 listed building and an Ancient Scheduled Monument.
Here is a view from the north west. The remains of an arch are visible embedded in the western wall.
