A major quality in the character of Chichester is the juxtaposition of various building periods and styles which, because of their essentially domestic scale, create an unusually satisfying harmony. Examples of this can be found in such lanes and thoroughfares as Lion Street, St Martin's Square, Little London, The Pallants and The Close. The street elevations are complemented by the subsequent roofscapes of churches, shops and dwellings standing shoulder to shoulder in the natural development of real community.   Chichester's Market Cross, given to the city in 1501 by Bishop Story to provide shelter for those selling produce, is the finest in Britain. Visitors should on no account miss the medieval St Mary's Hospital, nor the 13th century choir building of the Grey Friars in Priory Park. The finest early dwelling houses are John Edes House, West Street, built 1696, and Pallant House, 1712. Interesting literary associations with the city include William Collins, John Keats, William Blake and H G Wells.
