Hemingsby House is a Grade I listed, 14th-century house in the north-west corner of the Salisbury Cathedral Close overlooking Choristers’ Green. It is an unusual building in that it was constructed as one house but is composed of two parts of different architectural styles giving the impression of two separate buildings. In modern times it has been altered to provide two separate houses. It is generally believed to have been built by Alexander de Hemyngsby in the 14th century, the first recorded warden of the Choristers’ School in 1322. Apart from a chapel constructed earlier and an extension of the 18th century most of the building was reconstructed in the middle of the 15th century by Nicholas Upton. He was succeeded by Thomas Fideon who completed the reconstruction and whose name appears on some architectural decorations in the house.
Thirty volunteers were required every fortnight during trial periods. The unit advertised in newspapers and magazines for volunteers, who were paid a small amount. A stay at the unit was presented in these advertisements as an unusual holiday opportunity. The volunteers were infected with preparations of cold viruses and typically stayed for ten days. They were housed in small groups of two or three, with each group strictly isolated from the others during the course of the stay. Volunteers were allowed to go out for walks in the countryside south of Salisbury, but residential areas were out of bounds.
