The Grounds


Wymering Manor



Below is a view of the back of the housejuts before WW2. The two projecting wings created a courtyard on the side facing Wymering Lane. In the nineteenth century the courtyard was built over and became the entrance hall to the house.



Wymering Church



The Church of St Peter and St Paul, Wymering is a Grade II* listed building. It is the earliest surviving church in Portsmouth, earlier than the Cathedral Church of St Thomas of Canterbury in Portsmouth.



Jubilee House



Few people passing Jubilee House today will know it has a long and rich history. It provides nursing care today so is not open to the public. For centuries it was the centre of a large and prosperous farm, part of the Wymering manor estate but after WWI housing was built over its fields when Portsmouth's boundaries were extended to bring in Wymering as Portsea Island became ever more crowded.
