The Winchester Tower, originally inhabited by William of Wykeham, was bestowed upon Sir Jeffry Wyatville as a residence by George the Fourth; and, on the resignation of the distinguished architect, was continued to him for life by the present queen.
The works within the castle were continued during the reign of William the Fourth, and at its close the actual cost of the buildings had reached the sum of 771,000, pounds and it has been asserted that the general expenditure up to the present time has exceeded a million and a half of money.

The second theory is that the accomplished London-based firm of' Francis Bernasconi and Son, who had been active as a family in England from the 1770s, did the work.
This latter proposal is the most attractive for we know that Francis Bernasconi (1762-1841) who originated from Riva St Vitale in the Swiss Ticino, made a speciality of working in 'Gothic compo' for among others James Wyatt and Sir Jeffry Wyatville.
His Louis Quatorze decoration at many houses is only rivalled by what he did in emulating medieval Gothic.
