    The parish of St Peter Cheshil lies just east of the River Itchen, at the foot of St Giles' Hill. Like St John the Baptist a few hundred yards to the north, St Peter Cheshil is outside Winchester's walls in the area known as the 'Soke,' which was under the jurisdiction of the bishop of Winchester. The accounting year sometimes runs from Michaelmas to Michaelmas, other times Midsummer to Midsummer.
